Peter Wittek: Quantum Machine Learning and its Discontents

This video clip is from the Creative Destruction Lab’s third annual conference, “Machine Learning and the Market for Intelligence”, hosted at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management on October 26, 2017.

The Creative Destruction Lab is a seed-stage program for massively-scalable, science-based companies. Graduates include companies such as Atomwise (San Francisco), Thalmic Labs (Waterloo), Deep Genomics (Toronto), Kyndi (Palo Alto), Nymi (Toronto), Automat (Montreal), Ada (Toronto), and Heuritech (Paris). This year, the program admitted 125 AI-oriented startups in Toronto and another 40 at other CDL locations across Canada. To our knowledge, this is the third year in a row that the CDL is home to the greatest concentration of AI startups of any program on Earth. In addition, in 2017 the CDL launched the world’s first seed-stage program focused on the creation of quantum machine learning startups. The mission: By 2022, the CDL will have generated more well-capitalized, revenue-generating quantum machine learning software companies than the rest of the world combined. The majority of these will be based in Canada.
