What is Quantum Computing?

Quantum Computing is several million times faster than the largest supercomputer in India. It will also reduce the cost of genome testing from over Rs 1 lakh per sample to under Rs 1,000, facilitating genetics-based personalised medicines to avoid unnecessary universal vaccination which may have safety issues. It also enables real-world events to be emulated in the virtual world.

Important takeaways for all competitive exams:
