Quantum Computing, AI, And Our Future Robot Overlords | The Show

For years, we have had artificial intelligence in our homes and pockets through voice assistants like Siri and Alexa. However, everything is changing with the newest generation of technologies, led by OpenAI's ChatGPT.

The future of education, work, and human creativity has already been turned upside down, but recent advances in quantum computing may supercharge this transformation even further. These new systems can solve complex problems that today’s fastest supercomputers would take thousands of years to solve.

Today’s guest, Whurley, is at the forefront of this new era. He’s an Eisenhower Fellow, a serial entrepreneur, and the founder and CEO of Strangeworks, which seeks to make quantum computing and quantum AI accessible and useful to everyone. Whurley believes that in the near future, breakthroughs in quantum computing will unlock the astounding potential of artificial intelligence.
