Microsoft is on a mission to build a quantum computer, and the company has appointed Todd Holmdahl to manage the project.
Holmdahl is the corporate vice president of Microsoft Quantum, a unit dedicated to turning the company's quantum computing research into real-world products. He previously helped shepherd the development of the Xbox, Kinect motion controller and HoloLens augmented reality headset as commercialized products..
Now Holmdahl and his team are gearing up to bring quantum computing into the mainstream.
"I think we're at an inflection point in which we are ready to go from research to engineering," he stated in a Nov. 20 blog post. "None of these things are a given.
