In previous episodes of the Georgian Impact podcast, we’ve learned about the need to get ahead of the impact quantum computers can have on breaking encryption with Mike Brown of ISARA in episode 97. We also got a great overview of different quantum technologies from Vlad Gheorghiu in episode 104. 

In this, our third podcast on Quantum Computing, Jon Prial welcomes Christian Weedbrook, CEO and founder of Xanadu. Xanadu is a photonic quantum computing company and a recent addition to the Georgian Partners portfolio. They discuss how quantum will improve financial analysis, help to make more efficient batteries, and optimize traffic congestion...and why the time for adoption is now.

You’ll hear about: 

  • The advantages of photonic quantum computing over other approaches
  • Use cases for quantum 
  • Why Xanadu is building an open-source machine learning library to help the community adopt quantum
  • What you should be doing now
