I really like this explanation of Quantum Computing and what it’s potential is.
Quantum Computing is a science that has the potential to solve problems at 1000x the speed of today’s fastest supercomputers… search vast amounts of data in 1000x the speed of todays’ fastest searching algorithms.
This explanation is the simplest I’ve found to date:
MICROSOFT & QUANTUM COMPUTING
Microsoft has had large resources dedicated to this field of research for decades, featuring the leadership of one of the world’s preeminent mathematicians, Michael Freedman. Michael Freedman is a Fields Medal Award winner, an honor often referred to as the “Nobel Peace Prize of Mathematics”, given to the world’s best mathematicians. Together, with numerous other Quantum Computing Researchers at Microsoft’s “Station Q” research facilities in UC Santa Barbara (and other locations), they are on the forefront of Quantum Computing.
Microsoft Quantum Computing Research have also published a video that has a more high level explanation of Quantum Computing and it’s value. (Hmm. Maybe I should have put this video first on this post considering it’s simplicity. Oh well.):
Here’s a write up about Station Q, our Quantum Computing headquarters:
