Quantum Computing: A terrific buzzword, an incredibly difficult to explain proposition, and a technology that has been the “next big thing”… for some time now. But why have recent Australian breakthroughs got everyone talking, and what is the promise of Quantum computing anyway?

So what’s being promised — and what are the pitfalls as we get closer to devices that can pass the visual Turing test?

Joining us to dissect the reality (virtual or otherwise) and explain the concepts and the hype is Byteside’s Seamus Byrne!
