A Rough Guide to Quantum Computing

Despite the remarkable advances that have lead to the computing power we have available today, many computational problems that address big challenges in global warming, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, materials, big data processing & machine learning remain intractable with the computers we have. Quantum Computing is emerging as an exciting new technology that holds the promise of solving some problems in minutes or hours that would take billions of years of compute time on todays machines. In this talk intended for both business and technical attendees, Rob will provide an introduction to what quantum computing is, why quantum computation could be so powerful, how Microsoft is working to build a truly scalable quantum computer, and the software and applications that will address the big challenges.
