Foley & Lardner LLP partners Louis Lehot and André Thiollier assess the potential business, legal, and intellectual property implications of quantum computing in the IPWatchdog article, “Here Come the Qubits? What You Should Know About the Onset of Quantum Computing.”

The authors provide an overview of quantum computing, the possible impact of the technology’s emergence on the U.S. economy, and the legal questions the technology’s advanced capabilities pose for a range of industries, including cybersecurity, privacy, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence.

“Quantum computing embodies a future with possibilities akin to the pioneering spirit of space exploration,” the authors conclude. “While classical computers retain prominence for many tasks, quantum computing offers unparalleled potential to tackle complex problems on an unprecedented scale, heralding a new era of innovation and discovery that fills us with hope and optimism. However, to fully capitalize on the potential of this tremendous technology, these kinds of legal concerns must be effectively addressed.”
