Quantum computing will revolutionize your approach to a whole array of business problems but it won’t solve everything single-handedly. Your task as CEO is to know where quantum will make a difference and make sure you’re ahead of your competition. In this episode of the Georgian Impact Podcast, Jon Prial sits down with quantum computing expert Vlad Gheorghiu to help you understand the use cases where quantum will be most effective and why by giving a quick primer on the quantum tech stack.

You’ll hear about:

  • How to think about quantum computing in relation to traditional computing
  • Where we are now versus where we will need to be for certain use cases
  • The quantum computing stack and how the different parts function
  • How to develop a business strategy for quantum and what the first use cases might look like
