Quantum computing is projected to create tectonic changes in major industries. To harness the power of quantum, major companies are building quantum teams to develop game-changing quantum algorithms. However, developing quantum algorithms development is nearly an impossible task, as the quantum software stack is still in its infancy. The session will discuss the key barriers to fulfilling the promise of quantum computing as well as promising directions to overcome these barriers.
“tket” is an architecture-agnostic quantum software stack and ‘best in class’ compiler. tket translates machine independent algorithms into executable circuits, optimising for physical qubit layout whilst reducing the number of required operations. tket's state-of-the-art qubit scheduling and routing protocol ensures optimal results even in the Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) era. This enables our partners, collaborators and clients to effortlessly work across multiple platforms and tackle some of the most intriguing and important problems in chemistry, material science, finance and optimization.
It might already be too late.
Encrypted data needs to remain secure for 10, or even up to 75 years in some cases. If stolen today, there is a likely chance quantum computers will have enough power to decrypt that data while is still very valuable.
Quantum computers create significant security and global dominance risks. State-sponsored programs will use quantum computers for attacks on encryption. These will be optimized to hack data in transit, in use, and at rest.
During this session, we will help enterprise and government leaders understand this looming threat. We will present solutions to make your organization quantum-safe by securing data, ensuring your digital assets remain safe well into the future.
Quantum computing is currently at a leaping point, similar to where the semiconductor industry was back in the 1970s or 1980s. At this nascent stage, businesses are working to figure out what exactly it’s going to mean for our future, and how this technology could make an impact on so many different types of technologies. In the automotive industry, for example, businesses look to quantum computers for simulating materials for new electric vehicles and battery technology. In Aerospace and Defense, quantum technologies play a major role simulating and modeling airflow over the wing of an aircraft – a process that could reduce development from months or years on traditional machines to weeks with quantum computing. Dr. Eric Holland, Director of Strategic Growth Initiatives in Keysight Technologies’ Quantum Engineering Solutions group will share his explorations in quantum computing, quantum communications and quantum sensing, which have amazing end applications in a variety of markets - in particular Aerospace and Defense and Automotive.
