So many challenges we face as a species demand either an unprecedented ability to simulate and engineer at the scale where quantum mechanics dominate or they demand reasoning over constraints at the planetary scale. Since Feynman pointed the way four decades ago, quantum computing has been a tantalizing possibility, a way to achieve breakthroughs we know conventional systems and algorithms will never be capable of.
Over the last five years there has been a dramatic increase globally in teams and funding dedicated to the hunt for ideal qubit. But from Lab to Fab to Volume isn’t just “a matter of engineering”, it’s a series of physical, cyber-physical and software systems engineering challenges that we need to be working now.
Kirk Bresniker of Hewlett Packard Labs, situated in a unique position between research and productization, joins us to give his perspective as to how to get there. His thoughts on approaching quantum computing development as a global community from the application down to the Qubits, as opposed to the other direction, offer insights on how to further its advancement.
