Today, we examine cyberwarfare, as the new arena for conflict. From independent groups like Anonymous to government sponsored hacks against other governments.
“Cyberwarfare refers to politically motivated hacking to conduct sabotage and espionage. It is a form of information warfare sometimes seen as analogous to conventional warfare although this analogy is controversial for both its accuracy and its political motivation.
Government security expert Richard A. Clarke, in his book Cyber War (May 2010), defines “cyberwarfare” as “actions by a nation-state to penetrate another nation’s computers or networks for the purposes of causing damage or disruption.”” - Wikipedia

So what exactly is Quantum Computing and why is it important?
“A quantum computer is a device for computation that makes direct use of quantum mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform operations on data. Quantum computers are different from digital computers based on transistors. Whereas digital computers require data to be encoded into binary digits (bits), quantum computation utilizes quantum properties to represent data and perform operations on these data.” - Quantum Computing - Wikipedia
“In 2007 a team of 8 students from the University of Adelaide School of Mechanical Engineering designed and manufactured a UAV named iSOAR. The iSOAR aircraft was specifically designed for civilian applications such as bushfire monitoring, shark spotting, and traffic surveillance.” - As seen in this clip:
One of the most used and most familiar UAVs in use currently is the Predator drone:
