If a large-scale quantum computer can be built, it will be able to solve a wide range of important industrial problems exponentially faster than even today's best supercomputers.

So far, no one has built a commercially viable quantum computer, but as you’ll learn by attending, several companies are working hard to deliver a commercially viable machine.

As evidence of their legitimate progress, consider this recent (10/21/18) New York Times article -
The Next Tech Talent Shortage: Quantum Computing Researchers -
which points out fewer than a thousand people in the world are engaged in research in the field.

If you’re an ambitious and results-driven entrepreneur, keeping up to speed on the latest developments in Quantum Computing is the best move you can make to assure your continued success.

Attending The Promise and Peril of Quantum Computing is an especially time-effective way to become acquainted with both the technology and major players in this vibrant sector.

In particular, you’ll hear from a superposition of highly accredited experts entangle both theory and practice, as they discuss key issues such as:

- Distinct approached major players are taking and their timetables for deployment
- Which applicant sectors are receiving attention
- How Quantum Computing is attracting venture capital
- What resources are available for you to become more engaged

Dr. Isaac Kim, Moderator, Physics Department, Stanford University
Matt Johnson, CEO, QC Ware
Ryan Karle, Product Manager, Rigetti
Dr. Stefan Leichenauer, Visiting Faculty, GoogleX
Krithik Puthalath, Business Development, Cambridge Quantum Computing
Dr. Terence Rudolph, PSI Quantum

In summary, attending this highly informative session on Quantum Computing is an excellent opportunity to jump into the loop on this technology sure to make a historical impact in both commerce and culture. Lacking the insights the panel will address, you’ll be at a disadvantage to those who are informed of the timetable of this genuinely transformative technology.

NOTE: Seating in building is limited by Fire Marshal regulations and given the exciting topic and no charge, it's likely the space will fill up quickly. So it’s highly recommended you RSVP now, assuring you a seat
