In the Courier Mail (Brisbane, Australia), CEO Michael Brett discusses how quantum computing will change everything. The technology "will offer a new way to think about solving complex problems… and will likely have their most profound impact in supporting machine learning," he says.
Ray O. Johnson, executive director at QxBranch, co-hosts a full hour of CNBC Asia's “Squawk Box” with Bernie Lo and discusses the immense possibility of quantum computing and its applications in the digital age.
QxBranch works with firms to analyze on-going streams of data generated as a result of normal operations. Examples include financial information, customer data, athletic performance, and national security issues.
QxBranch conducts a comprehensive initial assessment to convert data gathering into real-time insight, and then develops analysis tools to generate and evolve this information monthly. This allows firms to react quickly to changes in customer behavior, market in dynamic systems, and eliminate emerging or unnecessary costs.
For immediate or breaking challenges, QxBranch will addresses specific issues related to data analysis, data management, and high performance IT systems. We take an objective and systematic approach to solving complex problems, bringing interdisciplinary expertise in data science, engineering, physics, and business analytics.
With rare access to commercial quantum computing capabilities, QxBranch helps high-tech firms understand, position for, and exploit this emerging field.
