Embracing Disruption: Lessons from building the first quantum computer

Here’s an article written about disruptive technology in Canada featuring a case study of the impact D-Wave could have on future innovation in healthcare:

Embracing disruption: Lessons from building the first quantum computer

From the article:
“Many health experts believe that in the next five to ten years, quantum computing will radically improve the ability to understand, treat and cure diseases.”

  1. I think there are some obvious applications of quantum computing to research areas like genomics and protein folding (as the article points out). However, I could see some really cool work being done for imaging and brain mapping. Also, there are some immediate needs in clinical decision support which leaves a knowledge base in the dust and leverages a “genetic” algorithm (think searching ALL health systems for a likely diagnosis or interaction). Dwave could be all over that field – especially looking at the direction US Healthcare is moving with clinical/accountable care systems.

  2. Do you know what is holding up sales of the Vesuvius quantum computer and will it probably be months before there is an announcement?
