Quantum Computing’s Tie to HPC

Quantum computing is an incredibly complex industry, how can someone possibly attempt to understand where the current state is and where it’s heading? Using data! That’s exactly what Bob Sorensen does as Chief Analyst for Quantum Computing at Hyperion Research. In his analysis he views quantum computing through the lens of high performance computing, drawing parallels and illuminating differences.

Waiting is Not An Action

When it comes to major disruptive technologies like AI, data analytics, and quantum computing, many companies are playing to not lose. That’s fine, but if like us at Zapata you want to play to win, you have to realize that waiting is not an action. Andy Walter knows that with his extensive experience in corporate IT evolution and digital transformation from the last 3 decades. Now he has a book by the same title – Waiting Is Not An Action. If playing to win sounds more appealing than playing to not lose, this is the episode for you.

Quantum-Secure Encryption

The combination of quantum computing and security gets really complicated, really fast. Two of Zapata’s founders break down the basic types of quantum security methods, the different ways quantum will impact security at the enterprise level, and list some reasons why the time to start preparing for this next level of security innovation is now.

Enterprise Transformation

Ever wondered how enterprise AI transformation compares to how enterprises should be approaching the adoption of quantum technologies? Or what lessons can be learned from the machine learning revolution so pitfalls can be avoided with quantum? In this episode, Katherine Londergan sits down with Dana Jones, a veteran of the machine learning transformation and CEO of RealPage to learn what her experience in both fields has taught her.

Quantum Optimization in the Real World

Optimization is one of the major areas often brought up as a place where quantum computers could provide an advantage first. But why is that and how do we get there? In this episode, Yudong, Alejandro, and I talk all about that.

What Quantum Can Bring to Machine Learning

Many of our employees, customers, and users have come from machine learning and Brain and Luis are no exceptions! Hear from them about having 1 foot in machine learning and one foot in quantum, pushing what’s possible with quantum boosts to classical algorithms, and why enterprises should care now. This episode should be especially interesting to those who are more on the technical side: ML practitioners (and those who work with them) who can use quantum today and in the future to take their impact to the next level.

The Path to Practical Quantum Applications

In this pod one of Zapata’s scientific founders dives into the craft of creating, benchmarking, and piloting quantum algorithms for enterprise-scale, looking at some real-world examples along the way. That said, it will be a bit more technical than the last.  Stick with it and you’re sure to learn something!
