White Paper On Quantum Computing And Quantum Communication

Quantum computing (QC) and quantum communication (QCom) are very promising in terms of commercial applications. Presently, however, both technologies face several roadblocks that need to be tackled in order to enable widespread commercialization. In both cases, a stronger collaboration and exchange between industry and academia is required. Technology-specific road blocks are: For QC, 1. Limited open access to QC hardware. 2. Lack of good software, i.e., more QC algorithms that solve real-world problems. 3. limited access to industrial manufacturing facilities makes it challenging to probe the scaling up of QC. 4. Technological challenges like limited qubit connectivity, too low gate fidelities, or large amounts of qubits required for error correction. 5. Missing business infrastructure, e.g., availability of long-term venture capital. 6. Brain drain (i.e. loss of knowledge, human resources, and IP) and a lack of knowledge protection.
