It all starts with a qubit

In quantum computing, a qubit (short for “quantum bit”) is a unit of quantum information—the quantum analogue to a classical bit. Qubits have special properties that help them solve complex problems much faster than classical bits. One of these properties is superposition, which states that instead of holding one binary value (“0” or “1”) like a classical bit, a qubit can hold a combination of “0” and “1” simultaneously. When multiple qubits interact coherently, they can explore multiple options and process information in a fraction of the time it would take even the fastest non-quantum systems.
