QuEnG Seminar, Innovation - The Changing Landscape of Quantum Computing

on the November 22, 2019

As part of the next QuEnG Seminar - Innovation, we are pleased to welcome Si-Hui Tan, Chief Science Officer at Horizon Quantum Computing and Visiting Professor of the Niels Bohr International Academy (Copenhagen), on Friday Nov. 22 at 11:00 in room Remy Lemaire K223 of the Institut Néel.
Quantum computing, that is processing information using quantum effects, is considered to be one of the most disruptive technology today. It promises to transform broad swathes of industry from finance to drug design by accelerating certain optimization and machine-learning tasks, and by enabling more accurate simulations of chemicals. The development of quantum computing hardware is reaching a tipping point where quantum computers will be practical, and industries are showing excitement in their potential. However, some gaps still have to be bridged in order to utilize a quantum computer, and they open up a wealth of exciting business opportunities. I will describe how existing companies participate in the emerging quantum economy in light of these gaps and share my experience on transitioning from academia to industry.
