Quantum Computer and Applications for the Society 5.0

Main Article Content

Nuth Otanasap


Quantum computing is another technology that we cannot ignore for Society 5.0. Thanks to the capabilities of quantum computers, the processing of today's conventional computers is impossible. The wide range of quantum computing applications is challenging, especially for Society 5.0, which requires sustainable development. Countries that could not be a leader of artificial intelligence and machine learning could breakthrough to take the lead in the quantum computing era. This article focuses on the importance of quantum computing and quantum computing with various applications for Society 5.0, such as advancements in material science, agriculture, medicine, logistics, production, finance, energy, artificial intelligence, and machine learning technologies. Furthermore, new jobs in specialized hardware, physics, computer science, and chemistry that a quantum computer will initiate and apply are explained.
