For the last year, there’s been an increased buzz around quantum computers. Are they hype or just over the horizon? Exactly how far we from the next computing revolution?
Here’s a great explanation of quantum computing, as well as the notion of “quantum supremacy” when a quantum computer will beat a traditional super computer.
Quantum computing is a hard subject to get your head around. Fortunately, this video has Dr. Talia Gershon (Senior Manager, Quantum Research) to explain quantum computing to 5 different people; a child, teen, a college student, a grad student and a professional.
In case you’re curious about how soon you’ll need to start working with qubits or worry about all encryption going away, here’s a realistic look at where we stand with quantum computing as of May 2018.
Here’s an episode of BBC Click where they go deep into explaining quantum computing.
Dr. Talia Gershon, a materials scientist by training, came to IBM Research in 2012.
After over 4 years of developing next-generation solar cell materials, she got inspired to learn about quantum computing because it might enable all kinds of discoveries (including new materials).
Having authored the Beginner’s Guide to the QX, she passionately believes that anyone can get started learning quantum!
This video explained one of my big mental blocks to understanding quantum computers.
In this episode of Data Driven, Frank and Andy talk about the Ignite 2017 conference, quantum computing, great guests, and the effects of hurricanes on podcast production schedules.
Oh yeah and the AI apocalypse. Maybe Elon Musk knows something we don’t.

With Microsoft’s quantum computer announcement earlier this week, the term is on a lot of people’s radar now.
However, it’s a concept that many people struggle to grasp.
I’ve posted several videos already explaining the concept, however, Dario Gil from IBM Research explains quantum computing with a deck of cards.
