Description

Nathan Killoran (@co9olguy) guides Eric Anderson (@ericmander) through the cutting-edge world of quantum machine learning at Xanadu, a quantum computing company that is innovating with its use of photonics. Nathan is Xanadu’s Head of Software, Algorithms, & Quantum Machine Learning, and has detailed insight on their main open-source software projects, StrawberryFields and PennyLane. On today’s episode, Nathan explains how the barrier to contributing may be lower than you think, even if you don’t have a PhD in quantum physics.


In this episode we discuss:



  • Designing software for Xanadu’s unique approach to quantum computing

  • Machine learning, differentiable programming and more in the quantum domain

  • How even high school students can contribute to an open-source quantum computing project

  • Is there a road map for quantum machine learning?

  • Nathan’s “blue sky” interview questions
