There has been a lot of talk about quantum computers in recent years. However, it is believed that the first truly useful quantum computers appeared only at the end of this decade. If they do, they will initially be useful mainly in areas that require very complex calculations. The Singularity Hub has written a bit more about the areas where it was first thought that quantum computers would be used Which you can read more about here If there is a benefit.
