Why this question:
The article is based on the concept of quantum supremacy. Thus important from the perspective of GS paper-III.
Key demand of the question:
Explain the concept of quantum supremacy in detail and the discuss how it is different from personal computers and its impact on technology.
Elaborate – Give a detailed account as to how and why it occurred, or what is the particular context. You must be defining key terms where ever appropriate, and substantiate with relevant associated facts.
Structure of the answer:
In first, define what you understand by quantum supremacy.
Quantum supremacy refers to a problem-solving process by the quantum computer that cannot be solved by a classical computer in its normal lifetime.
Explain the genesis of the concept in detail.
Discuss the difference between quantum computers and regular personal computers – main difference being the way the two store information.
Explain the utility of the concept and in what way it’s evolutionary in terms of technological innovation.
Conclude by asserting significance of such innovations.
