Eric Ladizinsky is the co-founder and Chief Scientist of D-Wave Systems (@dwavesys), the world’s first quantum computing company and the leader in the development and delivery of quantum computing systems and software. Their mission is to use quantum computing to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.
D-Wave’s systems are being used by world-class organizations like Lockheed Martin, Google, NASA, USC, USRA, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Volkswagen, and many others and they have been granted over 160 U.S. patents and has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers in leading scientific journals.
In our wide-ranging conversation, we cover many things, including:
How quantum computing unlocks new paradigms
The reason quantum computers are a race akin to AI
Why countries are investing heavily in quantum
How to simulate the future with perfect accuracy
Why reality isn’t what you think and physicists often get it wrong too
The reason we may all be living in a quantum computer simulation
How quantum computing can help solve many of the world’s impossible problems
Understanding the origins of life
When quantum computers will pass conventional computing in terms of price efficiency
