Quantum computers are all over the news – and rightly so: There is a clear path towards quantum computers of sufficient size to outperform conventional computers at specific tasks, such as chemical simulations. But as of today, the only quantum computers in existence are small and noisy. Nevertheless, in the UK and elsewhere, an ecosystem of start-ups and established industry players who seek to commercialise this nascent technology has been developing. In this talk, I will discuss what the commercially relevant applications of quantum computers are and which bottlenecks need to be overcome to run them. I will describe some of the strategies of commercialising cutting edge technology such as quantum computing and turn it into a product. Finally, I will explain Riverlane’s principles with regard to quantum computing and to building a deep-tech company in Cambridge.
