Speaking at the Quantum Summit London, van Velzen said that quantum computing programs could learn lessons from successful AI projects that have moved beyond proof of concept. For example, it needs business buy-in.
End-to-end integration must also be considered; quantum is part of the solution in a larger computational workflow. Using a quantum algorithm alone performs only in a narrow case, but smaller proof-of-concept pieces can be stitched together into a roadmap for an application.
