    Applications of Quantum Computing

    Applications of Quantum Computing

    Recently, Frank was debating the applications of quantum computing with a friend.
    He then realize two things: it's about more than breaking cryptography and predicting the future is hard.
    Oh yeah, and saving the world.
    This show is rated 1 Schroedinger and was originally recorded live.

    Hello and welcome to this episode of impact quantum. This episode is titled freaking qubits how do they work?


    Voiceover


    Only Frank could Lincoln Insane Clown Posse mean to quantum computing so you are clearly in the right place to learn. This episode is rated to shredding's for some heavy maths content don't worry, it's not too scary.


    Frank


    Alright, so that.


    Frank


    Dubstep intro music means that this is impact quantum. The podcast for engineers who are curious about the coming revolution in quantum computing. I'm your host Frank Lavigna and my cohost will not be able to join us today. So as we promised in kind of the original show.


    Frank


    We're not going to kind of do that. We're gonna try to get to a more regular cadence. In these shows so this is show number Q. Although technically third in the series.


    Frank


    This show was rated 2 Schrodinger's 'cause. We will get into a little bit of technical detail but don't let that scare you off I'm going to talk about.


    Uh.


    Frank


    Cubits and Anne, how they work? My name is Frank Levin. Yeah, i'ma data in AI architect who got quantum fever not that long ago. In November 2019, when I saw kind of the The Amazing stuff that's just around the corner.


    Frank


    Um so today is about qubits and there's a whole meme about this. The original song referred to magnets. But I think if they were writing this song. Today, they would be writing this about.


    Frank


    Um.


    Frank


    They would write about.


    Frank


    Cubits hang on spotlight and performance hang on. Hey cool, it does that now Alright. They took my feedback let me start this over if you're watching this live I really appreciate it. I will be monitoring chat hey modern day tech. How's it going?


    Frank


    Uh, if you're watching this live, I appreciate you turning in live your listing later on the podcast. I will try to be very descriptive in the time that I have between now and.


    Frank


    My next meeting.


    Frank


    Alright so if if Insane Clown Posse were writing a new song. Today, they would probably talk about freaking cubits or how do they work?


    Frank


    So there was a whole Internet meme about it already on. To paraphrase something from one of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, they didn't say fricking. You have been warned.


    Frank


    So this is a?


    Frank


    Part of my big quantum presentation called Quantum Physics in 30 minutes or less.


    Frank


    Um?


    Frank


    Bye for people who have mixed feelings about it, hence mathematics.


    Frank


    Um this is the big barrier. I think for a lot of folks when they want to get into quantum computing. There's a lot of math. There's a lot of weird, kind of quantum physics and you hear a lot of things, said about quantum if you do a search on the Internet on quantum. There's all sorts of interesting kind of metaphysical stuff, not going to touch into that, but what makes quantum weird.


    Frank


    Is how we normally interact with the world. We normally interact. You know whether it's a baseball, whether it's the moon, we interact, which known as Newtonian or classical mechanics, right? If I held a this smart phone.


    Frank


    Right and I Drop it. It's going to fall fall, the floor. Maybe the glass will break. Maybe it won't.


    Frank


    But it's not going to fire. Let it go. It's not going to go up and blast off and hit the ceiling. It's not going to stay there in place. If I were to able to throw this fast enough, I would be able to get this to the moon. If I get through this a little bit less faster than that, I could get this into orbit, right? So

    Transcript (AI Generated):
    This episode of the impact quantum podcast is rated one schroedinger and is entitled Quantum is coming.
    Speaker 1
    I'm Frank Lavigna an this is the very first episode of impact quantum quantum computing is about the radically change.
    Speaker 1
    Uh, how we live an work, so let's roll the intro.
    Speaker 1
    Alright, with me to my I think it's left on the screen. Here is my cohost from data driven Andy. Later, how's it going, Andy?
    Speaker 2
    Hey Frank is going awesome.
    Speaker 2
    How are you?
    Speaker 1
    I'm doing well doing well. I've got the I've I've got the fever.
    Speaker 1
    Do you? It's not covered. It's not Corona Squantum Fever. That's what I got.
    Speaker 1
    So Andy and I have another podcast data driven.tv where we explore the emerging fields of data science machine learning an artificial intelligence, and you're probably wondering what the heck are you data sciency data engineer guys doing here talking about quantum computing?
    Speaker 1
    For miles back, let me tell you a story. In November of 2019 this is back when people would actually travel places.
    Speaker 1
    And congregate in large groups without thinking twice. This is before the words Wuhan meat market.
    Speaker 1
    More commonplace before when Corona was just a beer I attended a conference called M labs or might machine learning and data science summit. It's an internal only kind of conference for Microsoft employees thrown by Microsoft Research where they kind of come out of the lab and they talked to us about kind of what's around.
    Speaker 1
    Pike
    Speaker 1
    And, um.
    Speaker 1
    This is the conference that I went to in 2016 where I had my ahha moment or you know about getting into this field right? I kind of. I was into data visualization and power BI and kind of Munging Data with Excel.
    Speaker 1
    But the engineering wasn't in me, was not satisfied. Then I discovered machine learning and artificial intelligence, and where that was headed.
    Speaker 1
    And when I came back from that conference, completely switched on about. This is the future. This is coming. It's here, it's you know it's it's on its way.
    Speaker 1
    Most people thought I was crazy.
    Speaker 1
    I mean, even I had my doubts about it, so yeah.
    Speaker 1
    Through
    Speaker 1
    A number of coincidences. It took me 4 or or other reasons, took me about four and a half years or 3 1/2 years to get back there.
    Speaker 1
    Um and the first day came and went. I didn't have that. Ah ha moment, so I'm like, well, you know, maybe that's just like a once or twice in a lifetime type. Ah ha moment.
    Speaker 1
    It happens, doesn't have sure sure.
    Speaker 1
    And.
    Speaker 1
    Then on the second day it was a hardware presentation. Now I can't talk about everything I saw, but that's when quantum computing was explained to Maine.
    Speaker 1
    And why?
    Speaker 1
    It is the next big thing.
    Speaker 1
    An I knew I was on the right track because when I came back I started telling other people that quantum is coming quantum quantum quantum.
    Speaker 1
    I sat it again like a ranting lunatic.
    Speaker 1
    And that kind of told Maine.
    Speaker 1
    That maybe I'm on to something because the next wave always looks crazy before it happens.
    Speaker 2
    Yeah.
    Speaker 2
    So.
    Speaker 1
    With that in mind, I attended, um I started studying quantum type computing articles and and Whatnot, and I even installed Q Sharp that night in the hotel.
    Speaker 1
    Then I opened up my.
    Speaker 1
    Brought on my Visual Studio.
    Speaker 1
    And, um.
    Speaker 1
    Was like OK, now what?
    Yeah.
    Speaker 1
    Um and once again, I'm trying to keep a growth mindset here when I first read a book on statistics.
    Speaker 1
    My first reaction was, uh, what did

How close is close?

Quantum Computing is a lot closer than you think...Frank guides us there :-)
