Quantum computers will be “tools of destruction, not creation”, one of the world’s top physicists has claimed sparking fears the super-computers could cause widespread chaos when they are readily available.

Quantum computers are the next generation of computers which can operate thousands of times faster than standard machines and process multiple data at once.

The lightning-fast computers allow for multiple questions to be answered at once at a rapid pace, as opposed to standard computers which work through answers sequentially.

While a standard computer uses “bits” to process problems and information, quantum computers use “qubits” which can store and process multiple bits of information at the same time.

Alexander Lvovsky, Quantum Optics group leader at the Russian Quantum Center and Professor of Physics at the University of Calgary in Canada, said warned quantum computers will wreak havoc, according to Futurism.

This is because they would be able to break modern cryptography raising fears of major security breaches.

All sensitive digital information that is sent over the internet, such as top secret military information, medical records and financial information, is encrypted to protect the data from hackers.
