(TechRepublic) Julie Love, senior director, Microsoft Quantum Business Development, at Microsoft Ignite 2019 in Orlando provided an extensive interview about Microsoft’s role in quantum computing and its push for quantum impact
This article is a transcript of the interview.

Microsoft Quantum About Impact
Love says that Microsoft Quantum is all about quantum impact. Delivering solutions, helping our customers solve their toughest compute challenges by building the world’s most scalable compute stack. It’s really this ambition for scale that we took the next step on our quantum journey to deliver impact through announcing Azure Quantum–full end-to-end open cloud ecosystem for quantum development, really bringing the tools of quantum computing to developers at organizations, people around the world.
Microsoft is at the forefront of developing post quantum cryptographic solutions, so these are cryptographic protocols which are resistant to both classical and quantum attacks.

Our aim is also to make this incredibly accessible for developers. We see this as a need, not just to create a language for physicists working in the lab, but for programmers around the world.
The interview is information-dense and worth the time to read or listen (or both).
