  Any company looking to get in on the ground floor of quantum computing should ask itself three questions, advises Chad Rigetti, CEO of Rigetti Computing, which is building the first cloud service powered by quantum computing.   1.   Does your organization use advanced computing? 2.   Do you know what your unmet computing needs are? 3.   If you could meet those computing needs, would it grow your top line revenue?   “If the answer to three of those questions is yes, then the time to start thinking about doing something in quantum is now,” Rigetti concluded Monday at the Forbes CIO Summit in Half Moon Bay, California.   On today’s show our guests will start to answer these questions.   Michael Brett is Chief Executive Officer of QxBranch.
