AB - Quantum Computing and Quantum Information Science seem very
promising and developing rapidly since its inception in early 1980s by Paul
Benioff with the proposal of quantum mechanical model of the Turing machine
and later By Richard Feynman and Yuri Manin for the proposal of a quantum
computers for simulating various problems that classical computer could not.
Quantum computers have a computational advantage for some problems, over
classical computers and most applications are trying to use an efficient
combination of classical and quantum computers like Shorâ€™s factoring algorithm.
Other areas that are expected to be benefitted from quantum computing are
Machine Learning and deep learning, molecular biology, genomics and cancer
research, space exploration, atomic and nuclear research and macro-economic
forecasting. This paper represents a brief overview of the state of art of quantum
computing and quantum information science with discussions of various
theoretical and experimental aspects adopted by the researchers.
