(InsideHPC) In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at Quantum Computing and HPC and how the two spaces are evolving and cooperating. The interviewee is Mike Booth, CTO of Quantum Computing, Inc.
The interview discusses how Quantum Computing and HPC interface, analog vs digital, qubits, magnets, resistors, connectors, cryogenics, algorithms, languages, the huge search spaces, NP-complete problems, quadratic unconstrained binary optimization (Qubo), Tabu search, etc. and how they are two different games right now but touching two sides of the big problems that represent grand challenges. Because QC is an accelerator, it fits nicely with how a lot of HPC is being done today.
