Bank of England Says About Impact of Quantum Computers on Financial Markets

The point of view of the mentioned organization provides that the specified devices will help to carry out complex transactions. The financial regulator of the United Kingdom also admits the possibility of creating so-called quantum markets. In this case, functional spaces are meant in which payment transactions will be transformed. Moreover, the Bank of England believes that super-powerful quantum computers can change the way the financial market functions. The relevant assumptions are contained in a blog post by Bank Underground.

Ed Hill, an employee of the Bank of England’s advanced analytics division, says that quantum networks can fundamentally change what payment means. According to the expert, in the transformation process, the consumer can participate in the functional infrastructure of a new generation, within which the purchase process provides certain conditions regarding other simultaneous payment transactions or events.

A blog post by Bank Underground notes that a full-fledged market is one where assets can be valued and risks insured in any country. The level of market development is directly proportional to the degree of its effectiveness. The development of options and other derivative financial instruments was aimed at achieving the relevant goals. Currently, there is a demand for new functional solutions in the market, despite the potential difficulties associated with the introduction of innovations.

Quantum computers are a technology that is currently in a state of development. These devices can provide higher computing power compared to conventional computers. Advanced technology can be used in a variety of scenarios. For example, quantum computers can be applied when creating medicines. At the same time, there are concerns about cybersecurity in this case.

Ed Hill says that quantum computers create the prospect of a fundamentally new market, fundamentally different from the traditional configuration of this space. The expert drew attention to the fact that in the future such an infrastructure may be created, within which huge amounts of information and calculations are transmitted in fully quantum systems embedded in the new commercial landscape of service providers and equipment.

Ed Hill also noted the vision of the future and the trajectory of its materialization will become more understandable as quantum computers, networks, and other technologies continue to move from the world of science fiction into the space of objective reality.

The expert says that in the short term, the introduction of the mentioned technologies may be due to the benefits of individual institutions. In this case, an important aspect is the ability to insure risks and use information effectively.

Ed Hill believes that artificial intelligence and machine learning can be used to process quantum data generated by a new market.

As we have reported earlier, Google, Amazon and Microsoft Invest in Cloud Computing.
