The school of quantum computing is now in session. According to LinkedIn, quantum-related job postings have increased 180% and major universities play a key role in developing the next generation of quantum programmers, scientists, engineers and researchers. This episode of Quantum Impact takes place at the University of Washington, one of Microsoft’s partners in the Northwest Quantum Nexus and home of the QuantumX initiative. Our host, Dr. Krysta Svore, general manager of quantum systems and software at Microsoft, sits down with Professor Kai-Mei Fu, an experimental physics researcher and professor focusing on advanced quantum technologies. Kai-Mei and Krysta discuss their paths to discovering the field of quantum and then, Krysta speaks with students around campus about their quantum research. Finally, they offer advice to students who are interested in exploring quantum as a career path.
