Quantum computing in medicine: A bless or stress?

We briefly explored quantum computing; its potential to accelerate medical breakthrough by processing different problems of various magnitudes at an incredible rate, and whether we should expect some form of a “gold-rush” in an earlier blog entry. Coincidentally, on the same day, Google published an article on Nature, saying its scientists had achieved “quantum supremacy” – a…
