Fujitsu concludes quantum computing PoC

While the technology is not there yet, once quantum supremacy (the theoretical state in which quantum computers can be shown to perform any task faster than classical computers) is reached then computers will be able to enhance and speed up any function that can be programmed or, through machine-learning, self-programmed into machines.

This could have a significant impact on humans’ ability to monitor – and therefore limit – emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2). In the Industrial Revolution in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Europe and the west, new technologies like the steam engine harnessed the carbon stored in fossil fuels (beginning with coal and then oil) by burning it to produce usable energy. This resulted not only in untapping previously unimaginable amounts of energy to fuel rapid technological and societal developments but also in the release of CO2 into the atmosphere at unprecedented levels.
