Quantum computers are on the horizon and when they’re here promise to be far superior to classical computers, performing operations at a greater speed than ever thought possible. But when can we get our hands on one?

In our latest podcast episode Amelia Armour sat down with Steve Brierley, CEO of Riverlane, who explains how quantum computers work and the scaling changes that need to be overcome to make them viable, including quantum error correction.

Steve explains why the makeup of Riverlane’s team is perfectly suited to solving the current challenges with quantum computers and shares his view on when we can expect to see quantum computation used for real industrial applications.
