How Does a Quantum Computer Work? – Veritasium

“A quantum computer works in a totally different way from a classical computer. Quantum bits or ‘qubits’ can exist in a superposition state of both zero and one simultaneously.

So the amount of information stored in N qubits is two to the power of N classical bits.”
