Tracking a game changer: quantum computing research trends report

on Tue, 04/06/2021 - 18:38

A new Scopus research trends report explores the exponential growth of publication in quantum computing. A quantum computer can radically outperform a classical computer opening up possibilities for solving large problems quickly. However, significant hurdles need to be overcome before quantum computing hits the mainstream.

If not yet investing, research and business enterprises that want to future proof their strategy can start tracking quantum computing. The report shows that institutions leading in quantum computing publishing are dispersed globally, including China, France, Canada, the US, the UK and Singapore. And publication output includes private sector enterprises, such as Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT), IBM Thomas Watson Research Center, and Microsoft Research.

Explore these and other findings, such as the top 10 authors by publication output and snapshots of the most prolific authors.
