Will Quantum computers solve problems regular computers can not and when will we have them?

When full-scale quantum computers finally arrive, they could give machine learning algorithms a major boost, letting the AI systems find hidden patterns in data that today’s best technology has no hope of spotting.
We told that Quantum computers could study all possible solutions simulatously.

I'm sure they will. Like you say, they'll be able to look for multiple solutions simultaneously.
They're now saying we'll have fully functional quantum computers in about 5 years. That's the time frame I had in mind when they were saying 10 years.
My estimate wasn't based on any knowledge in the field, but on the pace of tech advancements in general.
Years ago it was the other way around. If they said 10 years, I'd say 20, but the pace of science and technology has picked up significantly in recent years.
Once quantum computers are part of the equation, we won't be able to keep up.
In other words, the list of solutions and discoveries will grow faster than we're able to read about them and put them to use. A solution may be discovered today that we won't get to for years. We'll have to program the computers prioritize the list. Like say, a cure for cancer is more important than a cure for acne. Or a new material for aerospace is more important than one for a cooking utensil. That's after they, the computers, determine how the materials could be used.
I think it's going to get a little crazy in the near future.

I agree. Those are priorities.

The priority should be curing the incurable. Cure autistic people, people with Neurological Disorders Cancer and things that prevent them from contributing all they can. Autistic people can contribute much. Their unusual perceptions of life provide a unique perspective on life.
