    This episode is entitled what and why Quantum Computing and is rated 1 1/2 Schrodinger's.
    00:00:26 BAILey
    It could be.
    00:00:27 BAILey
    Two Schrodinger's or just one.

    But first, here's some dubstep.
    00:00:47 Frank
    Hello and welcome to impact quantum.
    00:00:51 Frank
    The podcast where we.
    00:00:52 Frank
    Explore this new.
    00:00:53 Frank
    Field of quantum computing from an engineer's perspective. Maybe you're a software engineer. Maybe you're a data engineer.
    00:00:59 Frank
    But you keep hearing about this thing called quantum computing, which is going to change everything.
    00:01:04 Frank
    And I happen to believe that it will change everything, and to that end I.
    00:01:07 Frank
    Hey I have my trusty co-host from data driven.
    00:01:11 Frank
    With me Andy Leonard.
    00:01:12 Andy
    Hey Frank, thanks for for bringing me along as folks will quickly learn, you know way more about quantum computing.
    00:01:20 Andy
    Than I do.
    00:01:21 Andy
    So I guess I'm just here for my pretty faves.
    00:01:24 Frank
    Of course, of course we are.
    00:01:25 Frank
    Actually recording this in video on teams, but come with me with us for the first time in impact quantum history.
    00:01:33 Frank
    We have a guest and it's Doctor Mark Jackson.
    00:01:36 Frank
    Uh, who has probably the coolest job title I have heard in about a decade or two?
    00:01:43 Frank
    Welcome to the show.
    00:01:43 Frank
    Mark, you're our first guest ever.
    00:01:45 Dr. Mark Jackson
    Thank you Frank.
    00:01:46 Dr. Mark Jackson
    Thank you Andy.
    00:01:47 Dr. Mark Jackson
    It's great to be here.
    00:01:49 Frank
    Uh, so as Andy said, you know, I do.
    00:01:52 Frank
    When I you know I would use the term knows more as a very relative term part of the if you're listening to the show and you've listened to the archives.
    00:02:01 Frank
    Part of the reason why we haven't had a lot of shows is because I really kind of hit my cerebral limit at the time to talk about so.
    00:02:09 Frank
    Given that quantum is still a relatively new field and there's a shortage of experts in the field, but I think you know we were.
    00:02:17 Frank
    I was blessed to get in contact with Mark where we can talk about kind of this with an expert because he's a quantum evangelist.
    00:02:27 Dr. Mark Jackson
    Yes, it's a.
    00:02:28 Dr. Mark Jackson
    It's a pleasure to be here and I am Cambridge, quantum quantum evangelist.
    00:02:33 Dr. Mark Jackson
    I'm glad you like my title.
    00:02:34 Dr. Mark Jackson
    It's it's pretty unique.
    00:02:36 Frank
    That is very cool.
    00:02:37 Frank
    Uhm so So what?
    00:02:39 Frank
    You know, what does a First off?
    00:02:41 Frank
    How did you get into quantum?
    00:02:43 Frank
    What's your background?
    00:02:44 Frank
    Is your background in quantum physics?
    00:02:46 Frank
    Or computing or.
    00:02:46 Dr. Mark Jackson
    My background is in yes, so my

    The Disruptive Power of Quantum Computing

    The Disruptive Power of Quantum Computing

    This Disruptive Technologists' event occurred on October 13, 2021, 4 PM to 5 PM EST
    Quantum computing harnesses the phenomena of quantum mechanics to deliver a huge leap forward in computational power to solve problems. In this October Disruptive Technologists Webinar, we will be bringing you the finest minds in the Quantum arena.
    Quantum computers will soon be able to solve complex problems that today’s most powerful supercomputers can’t solve, and never will. But now quantum is going to a new level – it’s entering a new dimension. We are referring to computations using a completely new physical principle that has never been used before — we’re talking about computational power being available for much less energy and effort.
    Original YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Z5ZF0RQFc4
    MEET THE PANELISTSMark Mattingley-Scott: A veteran of the IT industry and pioneer of IBM’s Quantum Computing program and our own Disruptive Technologists Board Member, Mark is also a former 30 year IBM Quantum Computing Architect who just started an exciting new job as General Manager EMEA for Quantum Brilliance.
    Petra Söderling: Petra ran teams and innovation projects in a large multinational corporation (Nokia in Finland), founded and managed two startup companies in New York City (mobile apps) and New Orleans, LA (Real estate 3D). “Most recently I work as a Senior Advisor the Finnish government’s innovation funding agency, Business Finland. She lives and works in Colorado and advises the Finnish government on quantum, space tech, smart mobility, AI, and cybersecurity. Finland is currently building its first quantum computer, a superconducting 5-50 qbit qc that will serve the Finnish scientific and commercial communities. The country has deep roots in cold atom technologies and hardware but is actively inviting and building an international quantum algorithm ecosystem to support the existing capabilities. The US is an important partner.”
    Danika Hannon: Since 2018, Danika has been moving into the quantum computing space. During that time, she: became a leader of the MN Quantum Computing Meetup, completed a data science bootcamp, served on the Women in Quantum Advisory Board, volunteered for a quantum computing and AI startup called Boltz.ai, and became a Relationship Manager with Cambridge Quantum Computing, as well as the Deputy Head and IQSD Chair for the Quantum Strategy Institute.
    Ivy Cohen, President, Ivy Cohen Corporate Communications: Reputation Management and Communications Strategist.
    Frank La Vigne is a published author, podcaster, and conference speaker who discovered the near limitless potential of quantum computing at a Microsoft Research conference in 2019. In 2020, he launched the Impact Quantum site podcast to share his enthusiasm for quantum technologies with fellow data scientists and engineers. In 2021, Frank left Microsoft to join Koverse, a platform that adds enhanced security solutions for highly sensitive big data implementations.
