Honeywell International announced Thursday that it has created the world’s most powerful quantum computer.
“With a quantum volume of 64 the Honeywell quantum computer is twice as powerful as the next alternative in the industry,” reads a blog post on the company’s website.

OK, amazing. But who should care? The short answer is everyone.
