Quantum Computing

Unlike traditional binary computing that uses bits in either a 0 or 1 state, quantum computing uses quantum bits, which can be in superpositions (states can be added together to form a valid state). Quantum computers would, theoretically, be able to efficiently solve problems that are not practically feasible on current, binary-based computers.
