Tomversations: Episode 10 – Quantum Computers are the Future

Following on from Episode 9 – Post-Quantum Cryptography, I wanted to talk about the crazy world of Quantum Computing and try to help everyone understand how factoring large numbers and modeling natural systems works with this new shift in computing. Along the way, I get to teach a little about quantum physics, talk about cats and money, and even make a Scott Bakula joke. This episode has everything you always wanted to know about how to make a futuristic computer that knows everything and can break encryption while still sounding just sci-fi enough to be from Star Trek.
