The exercise was carried out in late 2017 by Kantar Media in order to better understand how the public views and feels about the Quantum Technologies (QTs) currently being developed by researchers and their potential applications. Evaluation of the public dialogue and the public dialogue process was carried out by 3KQ. The evaluation report will also be available from EPSRC in due course.

There is a worldwide research effort to demonstrate the power of quantum computers by using them to solve carefully chosen mathematical problems. The problem should be chosen such that it is easy to solve for a quantum computer, but difficult enough for an ordinary (classical) computer that the quantum computer is finished long before the classical computer is.
