Driving into Quantum Computing with Team Volkswagen

I'm truly excited today to bring you this interview. When I first read about Volkswagen and D-Wave teaming up on traffic optimization, I wanted to get to the team to learn more about exactly what they were up to. Traffic optimization is exciting, to be sure. But high-performance batteries for electric vehicles? Vehicles with artificial intelligence? That's some hot stuff, right? So I wanted to get this talented team to answer some questions, and boy did they deliver.

ARL’s Dr. Brian La Cour Discusses Quantum Emulation and Childhood Ambition

I'm psyched this week to share my interview with Dr. Brian La Cour, Director of the Center for Quantum Research at Applied Research Laboratories. His current research interests are quantum computing, contextuality, and quantum foundations. He's already published several papers this year, including "Using Quantum Emulation for Advanced Computation," which was one of the main reasons I wanted to talk to him.
