Wong Interviewed for Science Podcast

Tom Wong, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Physics, is featured in the latest episode of The Blunt Report, a science podcast, in a roughly 45-minute interview about quantum computing.

In the episode, Wong talks about this technology that could revolutionize the way we live life. He explains what quantum computing is, from how it operationally differs from classical computing, to how it is actually an entirely different way of computing and should be treated as such.

Wong also discusses some of the real world benefits and concerns about this technology. Particularly, how quantum computing could drastically advance our pursuit of higher tech medicines and vaccines, but also the potential vulnerability of our current information if we don’t prepare for a quantum computing world now.
