Peter Wittek, a roving adventurer between machine intelligence and quantum physics

Peter Wittek and I met more than a decade ago while he was an exchange student in Singapore. I consider him one of the most interesting people I’ve met and an inspiration to us all. Currently, he is a research scientist working on quantum machine learning, an emergent field halfway between data science and quantum information processing. Peter also has a long history in machine learning on supercomputers and large-scale simulations of quantum systems. As a former digital nomad, Peter has been to over a hundred countries, he is currently based in Barcelona where, outside work hours, he focuses on dancing salsa, running long distances, and advising startups. S: Remind me again, what’s your background? P: Thanks, Sriram. I graduated with a masters in mathematics in Budapest, then I graduated…
