Miles Tayler, senior fellow at the R Street Institute, recently moderated a fascinating panel on quantum computing.

Several others were with him on the panel: Chris Fall, Ph.D., senior adviser, president’s office, Center for Strategic and International Studies; Scott Friedman, senior policy adviser, House Homeland Security Committee; Allison Schwartz, global government relations and public affairs leader, D-Wave Systems; and Kate Weber, Ph.D., policy lead for quantum, robotics, and fundamental research, Google.

They spoke about the practical applications of quantum computing, how the U.S. was falling behind several companies on this technology, and why that could be a terrible thing.
