Paper Title
Quantum Computing: Fundamentals, Core Principles & Applications

The progression in “Quantum computing” over past many years is significant advancements in the history of quantum computers. It promises next disruptive tech, having various practical applications and implications for corporations and industries. Based on principles of “Quantum Mechanics”, i.e., superposition and entanglement, to represent state of data and to perform associated operations. These two core principles enable quantum computers to solve tailored problems significantly faster compared to classical computers. 2. Canada based “D-Wave” is one such quantum computer which is available since a decade. IBM has made significant leap in building an accessible quantum computer available on its cloud platform. Similarly, corporates like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Intel, NASA etc. have been investing in developing “Quantum Computers” and their applications. “Quantum Computers” are no longer a dream of physicists or / and computer scientists but has opened avenues for information system or computer application researchers. 3. This paper is an attempt to introduce the basics of quantum computing and tries to describe some known quantum applications for non-quantum physicists. It further elaborates the current developments in quantum computing with an introduction to potential application areas and few possible research areas in the field of information technology.
