A quantum leap for R&D

How quantum-centric R&D is reshaping research

Our latest episode truly probes the frontier of tech and innovation. We’ve spoken about quantum computing before on this show – now get ready for a much deeper dive.

Our guests – Richard Padbury from IBM Quantum and Sam Genway from Capgemini Quantum Lab – explain the differences between quantum and traditional computing,
and discuss the topic of quantum-centric supercomputing. Later, they explore topics including:

  • Quantum-centric R&D (QDDRD) and how it fits into the larger field of chemistry and material science research
  • How QDDRD accelerates that research, including examples of recent breakthroughs
  • The potential applications of these technologies in various fields
  • Challenges that researchers are facing

We also investigate the concept of “quantum advantage” – which makes it possible to perform computational tasks related to research and business more efficiently, cost effectively, and accurately.

This is a field that will change everything. Don’t miss this episode!
