Quantum Computing Now Podcast Episode 18 – Interview with Peter Johnson from Zapata Computing

I had an excellent, thoroughly entertaining, and long chat with Peter Johnson from Zapata Computing. We got to talk a lot about VQE, quantum advantage, and new algorithms that try to squeeze performance out of quantum hardware.
