Quantum Computing Now Podcast Episode 24 – Amir Naveh and Quantum Volume

Amir (VP of R&D at Classiq, a quantum software startup) and I talk about how Quantum Volume is measured and how we in the public should interpret the results that come from it. While the metric does have some flaws, it’s still a good general-purpose single-number way to compare devices.
