How quantum computing will impact the future of cities

Video interview
October 25, 2021


  • 4:12 – The impact of optimization: “The big three with quantum computing are optimization, machine learning and simulation. All three of these will apply to cities in the future, and the one that will have the most immediate impact is optimization.”
  • 5:40 – Smart cities on steroids: “To me, a smart city is not really a smart city unless it has perfect efficiency and that’s what quantum can deliver over a classical machine. Whenever quantum proves an advantage in an area, it’ll take off.”
  • 9:30 – Quantum timelines: “Around 2023, I imagine there will be a headline-generating headline every week because of quantum. By 2024 we’ll start to see more interconnect and the ability to link quantum computers together. They’ll act like one machine and that will be incredibly powerful."

Quantum-inspired algorithms could bring innovative solutions and approaches to product development, reduce time to market, optimize customer delivery, and speed up data transfers. But what impact could quantum have on the future of cities around the world? For that, Joe Kornik, Editor-in-Chief of VISION by Protiviti, interviews a quantum expert, Konstantinos Karagiannis. Konstantinos is an Associate Director with Quantum Computing Services at Protiviti and he also hosts The Post-Quantum World podcast. Watch the interview above.
