  • Getting Ahead in the Quantum Economy: A Deep Dive into the Hardware

    Quantum computing is often considered as one of the most disruptive technologies in the 21st century, with the promise to completely transform a wide range of industries from logistic optimisations to drug development. In order to eventually realise robust quantum computers, we need to build scalable quantum processors and a host of new classical technologies such as control electronics and microwave components. This opens up a wealth of exciting business opportunities for both tech powerhouses and startups alike. In light of this, we hope to kickstart the dialogue on some crucial questions such as:

  • Quantum Computing: Hardware and Software Implementations, Challenges and Opportunities

    This talk will focus on the hardware and software considerations of quantum computing. Dr Yvonne Yuan Gao, Scientist, A*Star will first provide an overview of the current hardware landscape and highlight some of the key challenges in realising universal quantum computing. The speakers will also discuss the appeal of a modular approach to scaling up quantum systems for greater computational power and complexity. Finally, we will look into some of the recent experimental progress in implementing quantum error correction, logical operations, and quantum algorithms using superconducting microwave circuits.

  • Quantum Computers: How They Work and What They’ll Mean for BIG DATA and Business

    Quantum computing was ranked as one of the top 10 breakthrough technologies in 2017 by MIT Technology Review, and Morgan Stanley has predicted it could help double the value of the high-end computing market to reach $10 billion in the next decade. While a fully-fledged quantum computer is yet to come, development over the past five years has been fast. The promise of such machines to massively outperform classical computers at some tasks makes quantum computing a potentially disruptive technology. Applications include quantum speedups for artificial intelligence, financial modelling, drug design, and big data analysis.
