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 optimization 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 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…
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…
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…
Using cardinality constraints for portfolio optimization opens the doors to new applications for creating innovative portfolios and exchange-traded-funds (ETFs). All while providing better returns with less market risk.  Host Konstantinos Karagiannis recently co-authored a paper on portfolio optimization with Sam Palmer from Multiverse Computing. Find out how the team was able to outperform classical financial index…
With the dominance of ESG as a key agenda item in the boardroom and C-suite, it’s no surprise that one especially noteworthy topic is sustainable finance – ensuring that investments in products and services are aligned with ESG and sustainability standards. This certainly is a key area of focus in financial services. In this podcast, Protiviti’s Paul Middleton interviews Ana Carolina Oliveira, Head of Sustainable…
Are you interested in becoming a quantum coder? The job market looks as large as the machines are cold. We’re all struggling in the quantum computing industry to find talent. Do you have what it takes? You may even be able to get started with less experience than you think. Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat about the path to this exciting career with Peter Noell from ColdQuanta.  Guest Speaker: Peter…
An 85-year-old idea may hold the key to nearly error-free qubits. The Majorana fermion has taken on almost mythical status, but Microsoft recently solved a critical technical hurdle to creating topological qubits with the particle. How close are we to quantum computers with this technology? What other future developments can we expect from Azure Quantum? Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat on topological…

Building better quantum computers requires improving every component. What if there was a quantum CAD tool that could help develop higher-fidelity qubits or effective quantum memory? Quantopticon has developed a software design tool to help photonic quantum computing live up to this promise. Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat about enabling the creation of futuristic components with Mirella Koleva from…
