BMW and Goldman Sachs are investing millions in a new kind of supercomputing that could change the world. But for now, nobody knows what to do with it

For three days this week, quantum nerds and businesspeople from 17 countries packed into the Computing History Museum — blocks from Google in Mountain View, CA — for the second-ever Quantum for Business conference. Quantum computing is unproven, and even if it can be made to work at the levels experts think is possible, no one knows how just it might be used in business. Attracted by promising advances, high-profile companies like BMW and Goldman Sachs are pouring investment money into quant...
