Quantum computing promises to solve hugely complex multi-variable problems that are impossible for classical computers to handle. It’s an exciting prospect, and research has come a long way, but quantum computers aren’t ready yet. Today’s experimental quantum systems are still too small to be useful. An alternative is to use quantum inspired computing. Quantum inspired computing uses conventional computing elements to approximate the behavior of quantum computing. With exceptionally inventive architectures and algorithms, we can manipulate data in ways that mimic the behavior of quantum machines. These systems are slower than true quantum computers, but much larger and more capable. In this lecture we will discuss this new class of computing hardware.
