What is a bit?


With quantum computing, bits may be replaced with qubits. These can be in a much higher number of states, including one, zero, or a number of superpositions of these states. The ability to be in more states would allow much more information to be processed in a much shorter time.

The term bit rate is used in telecoms to describe how quickly bits are transmitted, defined according to a given time period such as a second.
