At a time when many people are focused on recent advances in artificial intelligence, another transformative technology is quietly emerging to reshape our future: quantum computing. The people working toward this radical shift imagine a world where quantum computing revolutionizes drug discovery, financial strategies, and various global challenges. This episode explores the mind-bending possibilities of quantum computing with Rowen Wu, a product manager at Q-CTRL, a leading company accelerating the path to practical quantum computing.

CU Boulder’s MEDLab’s radio show and podcast, Looks Like New, asks old questions about new tech.
Each month, Looks Like New team speaks with people who work with technology in ways that challenge conventional narratives and dominant power structures. The name comes from the phrase “a philosophy so old that it looks like new,” repeated throughout the works of Peter Maurin, the French agrarian poet and co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement.
Looks Like New airs the fourth Thursday of every month at 6 p.m., or by podcast on iTunes.
