Aside from being an avid underwater photographer, Helmut Katzgraber is a professor in Texas A&M University's Department of Physics and Astronomy and a consultant for 1QBit Information Technologies (research lead) and Microsoft Research. I had the pleasure of interviewing him last week, and was excited to ask him about his research.
In a superposition.com first, whurley sits down for a double interview with Jerry Chow and Jay Gambetta where they cover QISkit, Artificial Intelligence, IBM's 50-Qubit accomplishment, and the myths and misconceptions about quantum computing.
If you’ve never heard of Hidetoshi Nishimori, then you might as well have never heard of quantum computing. His 1998 theory of quantum annealing paved the way for much of the progress in the field to date.
Robert “Bo” Ewald leads D-Wave’s international business as President and has a long history leading technology organizations, government projects, and industry efforts. He's super impressive and a nice guy, which makes him a perfect person to ask about quantum computing.
I was recently interviewed by SXSW Chief Programming Officer, Hugh Forrest. I'd like to share that interview with you today. It seems Hugh tries to write at least four paragraphs per day on Medium. So I was happy to help with this interview/post. I think you’ll find it insightful.
