Will Africa miss the next computational revolution?

One may argue that the future of quantum computing is rather uncertain. Its success rests heavily on the development of large-scale quantum devices that can perform universal computation. That being said, the allure of potential quantum computing applications has enticed many researchers to develop quantum algorithms, some of which can be run on the noisy devices available today. Whilst this research is moving from exploratory to practical, there are clear geographical advantages for access to funding and skill.

This got me wondering, if quantum computing does prove to be a catalyst for the next computational revolution, what will happen to the areas where funding and skill are lacking?
