27-10-2023 • 47 min

Disruptors and curious minds! Forget the rabbit hole, we're leaping into the black hole. It's another episode of your emerging technology podcast from the multiverse. Today learn with us as we explore quantum computing. Just what the hell is quantum computing? What is quantum entanglement? How do quantum computers work? Where are we on the timeline? What are the challenges? What will it eventually mean for business, brands and culture? Viroshan Naicker has a background in quantum computing. He studied theoretical and mathematical physics before doing a certificate of advanced maths at Cambridge. Since receiving his PhD in mathematics (his dissertation was in the field of Graph Theory - the mathematical study of networks.), he has worked as a tech consultant, a tokenomics researcher, advisor and more. He's also a writer and a very curious mind. Please enjoy the show!
