The Quantum Leap with Dmitri Maslov

The classical computing power has doubled every two years – a pattern known as Moore’s law. However, the ability to fabricate more and more transistors in a computer chip is approaching saturation as we are approaching atomic dimensions. Quantum Computing is a promising technology to take us beyond this. A quantum Computer uses qubits to run multi-dimensional quantum algorithms. Quantum Computers are faster and can solve problems that are beyond the reach of even the most  powerful classical supercomputers.

Dmitri Maslov is the Chief Software Architect at IBM’s Quantum Computing Division. He joins the show to discuss how Quantum Computing is different from Classical Computing. How to get started in this space, How would Quantum Computing impact current encryption standards, we also went through practical applications, quantum supremacy and quantum algorithms.
