  • IBM sees a lot of quantum computing use cases in SA and the rest of Africa.
  • IBM believes the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope can be one use case where quantum computing can be deployed.
  • Processing the vast quantities of data produced by the SKA will require very high-performance central supercomputers capable of in excess of 100 petaflops (one hundred thousand million million floating point operations per second) of raw processing power.
