What is quantum counting and how is it helpful in healthcare sector?
Hello, What is quantum counting and how is it helpful in healthcare sector? I would like to learn about it. We are still in the early stages of quantum computing, but this technology has already been used in combination with machine learning to quickly recognize medical tools and annotations during cataract surgery—the most commonly performed surgery in the world. Please leave your comments on this.
@harman While much of quantum computing’s potential is still to be actualized, past performance has already caused significant optimism for applications in medical imaging, genomics, and drug discovery. A revolutionary amount of computational power may soon make it viable to consider all possible outcomes of incredibly complex scenarios, such as drug interactions and comparisons, or more rapidly and cheaply sequencing human genomes. The deluge of data that comes with such discoveries can be quantumly computed to further other discoveries. Already, some tech giants like IBM offer quantum cloud computing as a means for people to familiarize themselves with the format and capabilities of such technology. That said, the real applications and heavy lifting will require substantial development and investment. There may not be significant concrete gains in quantum computing for 2019, but there will be lots of investment and boardroom discussions about it.
