Program Summary

If and when practical quantum computers are realized they will transform everything from agriculture, cybersecurity, medicine, automotives, energy, military, biochemical, aerospace to financial trading. An ideal application for quantum computation, artificial intelligence (AI) promises to disrupt every industry. If electricity transformed the twentieth century, AI is and will be transforming the twenty-first century.


For the longest time, scientists have struggled with accurate weather forecasting. A quantum computer could process the equations governing the many variables to predict weather, and to build better climate models, which would impact nearly 30% of the US GDP of US$6 trillion including food production, transportation, retail trade and others.


Lockheed Martin has plans to use it for their autopilot software that is currently too complex for classical computers, while Google is designing software that can distinguish cars from landmarks with quantum algorithm. The release of IBM’s cloud quantum computer to the public has enabled researchers globally to practise building quantum algorithms without access to their own quantum computer, thus building a global community and eco-system and super-charging the development of quantum algorithm.


That said, there are things that a quantum computer cannot do, and challenges abound in issues surrounding cybersecurity.


Designed for CTOs, CIOs, CDOs, programmers, engineers, data scientists, developers, and heads of research, information technology, information intelligence, product development, artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning, business intelligence and development & data analytics, this comprehensive 2-day program will provide you with practical knowledge and clear understanding of the fundamentals and development of quantum computing and quantum technologies, potential applications, quantum algorithm and how to prepare for the massive disruption when practical quantum computers are realized.


Led by Dr. Steven J. Silverman and Nils Paz, come prepared to explore the possible use cases of quantum technologies in medicine, military, banking & finance, energy, information technology, biochemical and more. Engage in stimulating and thought-provoking discussions to deepen your understanding of this massively disruptive technology, and learn how quantum computing will further boost the capabilities of artificial intelligence, machine learning and even blockchain.


Furthermore, you will watch a live demonstration of running a simple algorithm on the actual IBM cloud quantum computer, and engage in other hands-on exercises in this 2-day program designed for you to learn while exploring and experimenting.

Introduction

This program walks you through the development of quantum computing and the understanding of the massive disruption that quantum technologies will bring, how it interfaces with other disruptive innovations like artificial intelligence, machine learning and blockchain and what to expect in the next 5-10 years and why they matter to you and your organization.


Led by Dr. Steve Silverman and Nils Paz with more than 30 and 40 years of experience respectively and published more than 30 papers on quantum technologies, this program gives you the full overview of quantum computing from quantum computer to algorithm development and security, and explores the applications of and complex problems that could be solved by quantum computing in banking & finance, energy, information technology, military, biochemical, healthcare and other major industries through an experiential learning style with interactive discussions, demonstrations and hands-on activities.
