Catalyzing Computing
What is Thermodynamic Computing? Part 2

In January 2019, the CCC hosted a visioning workshop on Thermodynamic Computing in Honolulu, Hawaii. This episode of the Catalyzing Computing podcast features an interview with workshop organizer, Natesh Ganesh, a PhD student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst who is interested in the physical limits to computing, brain inspired hardware, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, and emergence of intelligence in self-organized systems. He was awarded the best paper award at IEEE ICRC’17 for the paper  A Thermodynamic Treatment of Intelligent Systems. I also speak with workshop participant Gavin Crooks, formerly a Senior Scientist at Rigetti Quantum Computing who developed algorithms for near term quantum computers. Gavin is a world expert on non-equilibrium thermodynamics and the physics of information.
