Brian Lenahan | Quantum Strategy Institute
Quantum computing is one of those buzz words that has been in the media a lot lately. There is a lot of hype and ‘coulds’ being thrown around. “Quantum could discover new drugs.” “Quantum could create better batteries.” “Quantum could increase data security.”
But these ‘coulds’ are very misleading, when the truth is that there are a lot of technical barriers (like decoherance) with quantum computing which must be solved before quantum computing will disrupt any industry.
But this doesn’t mean that quantum computers aren’t powerful and have a lot of potential. Quantum computers are incredibly powerful and are solving real problems right now as you read this. So in this conversation, we talk with award winning quantum computing author Brian Lenehan about what quantum computing is doing right now.
One of the most interesting points Brian raises is that for quantum to solve some very important and niche problems, it must be paired with other technologies like AI or ML. And the intersection between quantum computing, artificial intelligence and healthcare is exactly what we dive into in this episode of the Luminexus podcast.
