Quantum computing offers many potential benefits to various vertical industries. Consider the example of quantum sensors, which can measure brain activity, understanding how we respond to sleep, movement, diet, and aging.
IDTechEx provides a look at the science behind these new wearable sensors and the outlook for the technology within the wider quantum sensor market. These mm-scale devices can be placed into arrays within helmets, in closer proximity to the brain. The result is a wearable quantum sensor array that can measure brain activity.
Here is how this can help:
- New research for Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, epilepsy, and more.
- Better comprehend the connection between brain health and aging.
- Address the rising age of the population with new technologies and better understanding.
Looking to the future, the quantum sensor market is predicted to reach $7.1 billion by 2044. While measuring brain activity is one example, the technology can also be used in automotive and consumer electronics. The future is bright and one to continue to keep an eye on.
