Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionize computing, outclassing even today’s fastest supercomputers. However, quantum computing is still on its way to being fully developed.
Conceived in the late 1900s and has gradually been developed throughout the recent years, quantum computing remains a novel technology to many of us. Alongside the advancement of quantum computers, the quantum industry is also growing fast.
While working with Dr. Nguyen from boltz.ai, one of the first groups in the world using quantum computing to help increase the crop yields of farmers, I got to know a roadmap of how Dr. Nguyen and his team plan on applying quantum computing to agriculture in the coming years.
On Monday, July 20th, I had the great honor of talking to Dr. Allard De Wit from Wageningen University, one of the main contributors of the WOFOST crop model. WOFOST is one of the best crop models being used to measure crop yields around the world.
