Do you know "Transcendence"? A 2014 movie, where Johnny Depp sees the content of his brain uploaded into a quantum computer. This is just one example, but Hollywood could help us understand what quantum computing will change in the world, the day after tomorrow.

James Jay Carafano discusses these links between cinema and technology, for The National Interest, from the perspective of quantum computing.
Volkswagen recently announced a transport optimization system based on a quantum computer from D:Wave at the WebSummit in Lisbon. In general, the development of smart cities could well be achieved in the future through quantum computing. The number of objects, the singularity of their paths, the multiple possible options, make it a perfect subject for study in quantum computing. It would be a question of developing the nervous system of a smart city, relying on a quantum computer.
Japan is investing in quantum cryptography, used to secure communications of the future. A budget of 300 million yen (about 2.8 million USD) has been released, around a precise timetable: tests in 2022, production started in 2027.
