Episode 5 - Quantum Computing
Play • 42 min

What are quantum computers? Do they even exist and what are they used for? What is quantum superposition and entanglement and are they anything more than just science fiction?

In this episode we answer these questions by talking with Dr Mark Jackson, a Quantum Evangelist at Cambridge Quantum. The company, founded just seven years ago at the University of Cambridge, is a powerful advocate for the future of quantum computing, and Mark is at the forefront of such innovation. 

After a mind-blowing investigation of quantum effects we settled down to explore the many ways in which Quantum Computing is helping a surprisingly wide array of industries to use the technology - pharmaceuticals, finance, chemistry and materials science are among the first. Could we ever have a future in which our medical treatment and drugs were specially tailored to our individual bodies? The answer is yes, so listen in and be amazed.
