Quantum turns the world upside down: Robbert Dijkgraaf

For this special edition of the Planet B podcast, Thomas van Dijk (Waag Futurelab) sat down with outgoing Minister of Education, Culture and Science Robbert Dijkgraaf. What followed was a conversation about how quantum changed our worldview, and how new quantum technology may do so in the future. We discuss the possible risks, dangers and opportunities and how we can get a grip on such technology development, where we can learn from recent AI developments. Robbert Dijkgraaf argues why a dialogue with society is crucial to the equitable inclusion of such technology.
