More Innovations in Quantum Information Technologies

About this Event

The worldwide effort for the development of Quantum Technology has accelerated. However, there are still many challenges to developing Quantum Information Technology for implementation in a real-world environment and as a solution to real problems.  

In this two-part instalment, join our expert speakers as they introduce cutting-edge research on the following topics:

  • Architecture of a Quantum Information processing system
  • Quantum Software and Computing algorithms
  • Application of Quantum Information processing

Join us for the first instalment here.
