Yes, you read that right. This is not Quantum Computing for Supply Chain – the algorithms and applications that I have been working on, such as GAMA – but its maximally inverse. 😊
Repurposing Woolf’s opening in Women and Fiction (from her essay collection, Granite & Rainbow):
The title of this post can be read in two ways: it may allude to supply chains that contain challenging optimization problems well-suited for quantum computing application, or to supply chains that create components to build a quantum computer. The ambiguity is intentional.
I was enjoying an Indian Summer this past Wednesday – a delicious Southwestern Salad, lunching outdoors at Generoasta in Warrendale – when I received an email from a reporter from NextGov to comment on the recent GAO report (to the Congressional Addressees) on Quantum Computing and Communications, which I recommend to folks who want to get a quick non-technical overview of this emerging space, and you can read some of my thoughts in:
The timing of the email was particularly poetic because Wednesday is already my weekly scheduled Quantum Day (link to Tepper Quantum Computing website):
9-10 am. Quantum + Communications.
10-11 am. Quantum + Cancer Genomics.
4-5 pm. Quantum + Finance.
I can relate to Thoreau (you know from God: Omni-Channel Retailer that I enjoy reading New England Transcendalists):
My life has been the poem I would have writ,
But I could not both live and utter it.
My Poetic Life? ☺️
