Quantum computers could potentially solve complex problems much faster than classical computers.


Welcome to our FAQ! Get answers to common questions about modern technology.
What makes quantum computing different from classical computing?

It uses quantum bits, which can be in multiple states simultaneously, unlike binary bits.

Can quantum computers break encryption?

Quantum computers have the potential to break certain types of encryption, especially RSA encryption, due to their ability to efficiently solve large prime factorization problems, a task that is extremely time-consuming for classical computers.

What are the main challenges in developing quantum computers?

Major challenges include maintaining qubit stability (coherence), error correction, and developing effective quantum algorithms. Qubits are prone to interference from their environment, leading to errors and loss of information.
