Quantum Computing set to revolutionise the Health Sector

When people talk about the future of the health sector, we normally understand that to mean preventive medicine, tailored healthcare, automating certain surgical operations using robots, aggregating patient data to establish a more accurate health profile and – not least – all the new apps that allow us to track the state of our bodies on a daily basis.

Optimising treatments through computing
With its extraordinary computing power, a quantum computer is potentially able to solve highly complex problems, in particular optimisation issues. In the field of healthcare, quantum computers will ‟make it easier to analyse genetic information and identify a person’s genetic heritage,” Murray Thom, Director of Professional Services at D-Wave, one of the first companies to develop commercial applications for quantum computers, explained to L’Atelier, adding: ‟Researchers will then be able to use this information to decide on treatment options.”
