Quantum Information Processing and Communication, based on the physical laws of Quantum mechanics, exploits fundamentally new modes of computation and communication and holds the promise of immense computing power beyond the capabilities of any classical computer. In Quantum Information Processing, replacing bits with qubits, one makes two-state quantum systems that do not possess in general the definite values of 0 or 1 of classical bits, but rather are in a so-called. "coherent superposition", of the two. Full exploitation of this additional freedom implies that new processing devices need to be designed and implemented, and that a large scale quantum computer can in principle be built. New discoveries will enable a range of exciting new possibilities including: greatly improved sensors with potential impact for mineral exploration and improved medical imaging and a revolutionary new computational paradigm that will likely lead to the creation of computing devices capable of efficiently solving problems that cannot be solved on a classical computer. In short, Quantum computing is an economy game changer, with a potential of disrupting entire industries and creating new ones.
