101: Quantum Disruption: The Future of Materials Discovery (ft. Dr. David Muñoz Ramo)
By leveraging the power of quantum computing (QC), scientists can quickly identify promising materials (new or existing) for ANY application. QC enables this while saving on hefty lab operation costs, enabling speedy and cheap materials discovery. In this episode, we explore this fascinating intersection of quantum computing and materials science.
Our guest, Dr. David Muñoz, shares his insights on how quantum computing can enhance many facets of science. He is an expert on quantum computing with 15 years of experience in computational science. He is the current head of Quantum Chemistry for Quantinuum, a quantum computing-based company. With him, we discuss:
🔹️What quantum computing is, and how it performs compared to classical computing.
🔹️A discussion of the fields, topics of research, and applications that can best benefit from quantum computing.
🔹The major drawbacks of quantum computers, and the innovations that will be needed to overcome them.
🔹Advice and ways that students can get good at quantum computing.
🔹And much more!
