Zak Romaszko: Quantum Computing

May 6, 2019

Today we speak to Zak Romaszko, who studies something about quantum computing.

Zak explains what quantum means, how ion trap technology can help develop the next generation of computers for massively enhanced processing power, and how he works with something called a 'Pringle' that isn't a delicious potato-based snack.

We discuss the future of environmentally-friendly computing, and Zak gives us each a gift! Veronica has a cold and struggles to get her brain round anything; Gigi takes a premature leap into parallel universes. We also chat about quantum dishwater tablets, quantum speakers and quantum bullshit.
