A popular potential application of quantum algorithms is cryptography: the science of encoding data and secure communication. Can you think of other applications of quantum algorithms?
There are quite a few applications already known, but a lot of them still have to be discovered. A few examples:
- Biomedical simulations
- Chemistry simultaions
- Financial modeling
- Weather Forecasting and Climate Change
- Machine learning
This article gives a few examples of real-world quantum applications that are developed right now!
