Before I did math, I did debate.
And now I’ve found a way to reconcile the two! Gil Kalai is a great researcher in theoretical computer science who has written several articles that are skeptical of the possibility of quantum computers ever being built. I think his ideas are interesting, but wrong.
So we’ve agreed to debate on the neutral territory of Dick Lipton and Ken Regan’s blog, Godel’s Lost Letter.
The debate begins with Gil laying out his case for skepticism of quantum computing.
In a few days, I’ll post my reply there. Stay tuned…
