UCD/IBM Quantum Technologies Colloquium

Thu, 28 Mar 2019 09:15:02 GMT

Annual UCD/IBM Quantum Technology Colloquium on the 28th March at UCD 

This event will focus on emerging research opportunities in Quantum Technologies and is organised in partnership with IBM Research - Ireland, UCD Research, and the UCD Institute for Discovery.

Quantum technology is an emerging and highly interdisciplinary field of study that draws on expertise in Science and Engineering but is expected to be highly disruptive to a range of other disciplines. Though early in its development, quantum computing is now available on real hardware via the cloud through IBM Q. This radically new kind of computing holds open the possibility of solving some problems that are now and perhaps always will be intractable for “clas sical” computers.

This event will cover a broad spectrum of cutting-edge technologies ranging from quantum simulation, to quantum computing, to post-quantum cryptography, and will combine academic and industrial sessions, with contributions from leading scientists and practitioners in the field. As part of this event, IBM Research -- Ireland will introduce IBM Q, an industry-first initiative to build universal quantum computers for business and science, and UCD will outline exciting new developments in Quantum Computing hardware.

The event will take place on the 28th March in the Moore Auditorium at the UCD O'Brien Centre for Science, UCD from 9:45 AM, with registration starting at 9:15. Lunch and light refreshments will be served.
