That Quantum Computing and Searching is the next Information Security (IS) and Information Retrieval (IR) frontier is more than clear. According to Phys.org and quote
“The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is officially asking the public for help heading off a looming threat to information security: quantum computers, which could potentially break the encryption codes used to protect privacy in digital systems. NIST is requesting methods and strategies from the world’s cryptographers, with the deadline less than a year away.”

Now that Quantum Computers and Quantum Searches are at a corner near you, the implications are many: from search marketing to search apps, from social grids, to quantum PCs, from big challenges to big data, from quantum retrieval to mind retrieval: The sky is the limit. Back in 2013 we mentioned quantum searches in the context of XOR/XNOR searches.
