What is a quantum computer in short ? what does it look like ?
Can it be as fast as a present super computer ?

Another, beside crypto, what can quantum algorithms do ? Can they do something good like genetic algorithms ? :redface:

Your question should be just the opposite. And the answer is NO.

Nothing like what most people have in mind, as far as a computer. Oh and only the most elementary experimental ones that contain around 4 qubits, maybe more, have been produced. As far as I know.
