Professor John Martinis: The Quantum Breakthrough

The Quantum Breakthrough

The Quantum Breakthrough

Professor John Martinis, a pioneering thought leader in quantum computing, offers an insider’s view of the present and future of the technology that could revolutionize computing and the industries that depend on it. He describes applications that can benefit from quantum computing, the value it can unlock, and areas of quantum computing likely to succeed. He also addresses the commercial challenges facing quantum technology companies, ideas for enterprises interested in applying the technology, and the role that government should play if it seeks to be at the leading edge.

Mr. Martinis, a professor of Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, focuses his research on proving quantum supremacy over classical computers. He has demonstrated some of the most reliable qubits around, leading to positions with Google and then Silicon Quantum Computing. While a quantum computer has yet to be built, the work is progressing, and Professor Martinis notes that any day now, there could be a published paper that shows it can be done.
