Listen to our latest podcast about quantum computing

By Hamish Johnston

One of the most enjoyable parts of my job is speaking to physicists about their research. A while ago I had the pleasure of talking to five physicists who are passionate about quantum computing. Four are academics: John Martinis of the University of California, Santa Barbara; Raymond Laflamme of the University of Waterloo in Canada; John Preskill of the California Institute of Technology; and Charles Marcus of the Niels Bohr Institute in Denmark. The fifth physicist is Geordie Rose, who is the co-founder of a company that says it has built a quantum computer.

I learned a tremendous amount about quantum computing through those conversations and I’ve have put together a podcast that teases out the basics of quantum computing in the words of these leading experts.

You can listen to the podcast here, as well as obtaining more details about how to subscribe to our podcast service.
