Being prepared for quantum computing

Quantum computers threaten to break encryption, but moving to quantum cryptography now could safeguard data

One of the MIT’s best-known physicists, Seth Lloyd, uses a musical analogy to explain quantum computers. Classical computation, he says, is like a solo voice that produces a series of pure tones which form a single melody. Quantum computing is more like an orchestra, where many different instruments form individual melodies that compete and complement each other to form a symphony. Quantum computers are certainly music to the ears of scientists who predict that they will eventually be able to solve incredibly complex computational problems much faster than any technology we have today.

Standards for key information technologies

For many today, smart technologies facilitate carrying out daily activities, business operations, the management of critical infrastructures and more

The Internet of Things (IoT), increased connectivity and advances in artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, such as algorithms and machine learning are enabling industries to streamline processes, improve efficiency and reduce costs as they become more digitized.
