Risky Women Podcast | CRA and Fair Lending: Mary Bailey

Shelley Metz-Galloway, US lead of Protiviti’s regulatory compliance practice, talks with Mary Bailey, regulatory compliance expert, about the US Community Reinvestment Act and how upcoming changes to the rule should improve access to credit and have a big impact on banks’ compliance and reporting. They also take a look at the status of international efforts toward fai...
We’re getting close to practical advantage with quantum computing when running optimisation algorithms. Companies interested in being leaders in their industry should already be considering how to harness this promised power with use cases that solve their business problems. But some companies want a better solution that’s advantageous today, even if it’s only quantum-inspired. Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for…
Quantum computing requires quantum networking to reach its full potential. But there are engineering challenges to overcome. Learn about how repeaters that extend entanglement between qubits are really just application-specific quantum computers of their own. Also, learn how connecting these devices will pave the way for interconnect and other advances. Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat with Manish Kumar…
Quantum computing is built on the ideas of giants. These so-called quantum foundations contain complicated concepts, including entanglement. In fact, the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three scientists who expanded our understanding of entanglement. How does this key concept work? What are some other fascinating core ideas behind Quantum Information Science? Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat…
The current and future state of risk analytics is bedrock to empowering the compliance function’s forward-looking agenda. With the evolution of enterprise risks, advancements in analytics, and the ever-morphing regulatory landscape, compliance can be transformed by being further data driven, and monetise the deployment of advanced analytics in empowering intelligent decision-making and risk detection. In this…
In late 2020, physicists in China generated controversy by claiming quantum advantage with a photonic quantum computing system that’s technically not programmable. Other companies have been experimenting with photonic systems, including QuiX Quantum. How do these machines work? Should scientists redefine what quantum advantage means, focusing on practical, usable problems a machine is solving? Join host Konstantinos…
It’s hard to improve the purity of an atom. Identical and easy to find, atoms such as those in ytterbium can make flawless qubits. We only need to be able to trap and control them. Can using trapped ions as qubits therefore yield the most powerful quantum computers on the planet? How scalable is this approach on the road to quantum advantage? Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat about trapped ions and the…
Welcome to the inaugural edition of Protiviti’s Board Perspectives podcast series, in which we delve into numerous challenges and areas of interest for boards of directors. In this episode, our focus is on environmental, social and governance (ESG) – specifically, how organisations are judged! One of the most challenging aspects of ESG for board members is understanding what’s become a complicated landscape of…
Things can get tricky when you try to cram too many qubits onto one quantum processor. Is the best way to build a machine with thousands of qubits actually to connect or “interconnect” many smaller processors together? And can this concept be extended to interconnect several large-scale machines across vast distances? Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat about the technology that might get us to behemoth-…
Supply-chain issues are plaguing the world right now, across all industries, from manufacturing, technology, healthcare, and more. Can quantum computing offer a way to ease the burden and provide real customer advantage? Evidence seems to suggest so. Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat about this use case, and other innovative ones you may not have heard of, with Alex Khan from ZebraKet.  Guest Speaker: …
Mathematics is one of the most intimidating barriers for those looking to get into quantum coding. Mention linear algebra the next time you want to grind a conversation to a halt. What if there was a resource to learn the necessary mathematics to best prepare for such a career? Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat with Leonard Woody, the author of an excellent new book, Essential Mathematics for Quantum…
