Why Alibaba Joins Quantum Computing Race With Google, IBM & Microsoft?

London, UK - 6th August 2015, 14:00 GMT

Jack Ma is a living legend. Some have called him the next Steve Jobs. When the founder of Alibaba -- the man behind the largest ever tech IPO in the history of humankind -- begins to go Quantum what happens next in the world of big data, cloud computing, cyber security, cryptography and crypto currencies? Exciting times are made up of exciting moments. This is one such milestone moment which may yet turn the world of eBusiness, eCommerce and ePayments upside down like never before! We expect an unprecedented Quantum revolution post the entry of Ma. Why so?

1. The new gold rush stampede towards the trillion dollar opportunity of Quantum Computing, Quantum Cryptography and Quantum Technologies 2.0 (QT2) is growing by the month.

2. In the latest development, Alibaba’s Aliyun cloud unit and the Chinese Academy of Sciences have agreed to build a new "Quantum Computing" research facility in Shanghai to conduct further research in this exciting new field.

3. The stakes are very high in the QT2 area as several top governments' secret services -- from the US to Russia and from the EU major powers to China -- are already working day and night to keep up with the accelerating pace of this wave upon wave of change by maintaining high vigilance, continuous reconnaissance and surveillance, as well as financing overt and covert home grown initiatives at national scientific and weapons laboratories worth hundreds of millions of dollars each.

4. Meanwhile, Google, IBM, Microsoft and other technology superpowers are also working on their own Quantum Computing and Artificial Intelligence efforts and dedicating billions of dollars combined to these rapidly evolving initiatives.

5. At Quantum Innovation Labs (QiLabs.net) we believe that practical applications for quantum computers are still a way off, yet quantum cyber security and cryptography are likely to be hot spots; as indeed are quantum algorithmic and software simulators; as well as super accurate clocks and smart sensors within the Internet of Things (IoT).
