Quantum Computing: Superposition or qubit too far?
Quantum computing is enigmatic, thrilling, and almost impenetrable from the outside. If you're not a scientist or a mathematician, it's easy to get swept up in the hype. But are these spooky phenomena and mystical properties obscuring us from asking the important questions?
In today's episode, we enter the multiverse of quantum computing. HPE Chief Technologist Tony Stranack helps to understand what makes this tech so radically different. We size up quantum supremacy and harnessing decoherence with Dr. Ray Beausoleil, Director of Large-Scale Integrated Photonics Lab at Hewlett Packard Labs. Plus, mathematician, computer scientist and post-quantum cryptographer Dr. Sarah McCarthy explains why we need to shake-up our security now, before it's too late!
