In the next few years, companies like Google and IBM expect to implement small quantum computers, having very limited memory of, say, 100 qubits. These small-memory quantum computers will nonetheless be so complex that we couldn't simulate them using regular computers. This means they can potentially do practical computations that wouldn't be feasible on a regular computer. An urgent question is to determine which problems could be solved with this brand new technology. I'll talk about the development of quantum software in the next few years in particular applications of near-term quantum computers.
