In part 2, we will discuss about "why quantum computing?", "Overview of Quantum computer" and it's "present limitations".

All we got is one question:- Why quantum computing? And what is special about it?

If you have been having long term crush towards Intel, then you would have known something called "Moore's Law".
Intel innovation is inspired by Moore's Law and it's also because Moore's Law was proposed by Gordon Earle Moore at around 1970 from the observation made in 1965, who was actually the Co-founder of Intel.

Moore's Law:- It states that "the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled every year ever since the integrated circuit was invented". In the following years, the pace slowed down a bit, but the data density has doubled approximately every 18 months. Gordon Moore and other experts believe that this powerful law will hold for next 2 decades

So, Coming back to the question:- Why Quantum computing?
To prove it in easy way, we will be using Moore's law.
According to Moore's law, Over 400 million of transistors will be doubled soon.

Overview of Quantum Computer:-
Quantum Computing works by means of a logic through set of rules derived from Quantum Mechanics for computation where it makes use of Quantum bits.
Quantum bits are the Qubits which are not normal bits used by classical computers.
In classical computers, they make use of bits which are 0 or 1.
But, in quantum computers, they make use of Qubits which are 0 or 1 or both (in between 0 and 1).
So, qubits are more awesome than regular bits. But how can we prove it?
Here we go:- In a quantum computer, 100 qubits can store around 1,267,650,600,228,229,401,496,703,205,375 different number which has many trillion times storage capacity of all computers that has ever been made. In brief, 100 qubits will represent all possible 100-bit numbers in huge quantum state. Also, the accomplishing this tasks can be done in minutes. Whereas, this is hard or even not possible in classical computers by regular bits.

Present Limitations:-
The quantum computer can't be used for regular purpose for documentation or web or tools. Currently, it can be used as for communication purpose. But, this limitation isn't permanent, it's just temporary.
