Project Description

Mechanics of Quantum Computing

Can quantum computing help solve the Moore’s Law Problem? Peggy is joined by Helmut Katzgraber, professor, Texas A&M University, who says his main focus of research lies at the interface of physics, quantum computing, and high-performance computing. He says we aren’t going to solve the issue with Moore’s Law anytime soon, but there will be some instances where quantum computing will offer a huge boost. He says at the moment the quality of qubits is very rudimentary, and we still have a ways to go, but there is no doubt that quantum computing will be a disruptive technology.
