What we're about

The London Quantum Computing meetup hosts regular talks on quantum computing and also provides opportunities for scientists, entrepreneurs and investors involved in the field to network and learn from each other. This meetup is concerned with pure quantum computing - for other non-computing quantum technologies please join our sister group The London Quantum Technology (https://www.meetup.com/London-Quantum-Technology-Meetup/) meetup.

Quantum computing is on the cusp of an explosive growth curve, with applications that will have unimaginably large effects on the human race. These applications include artificial intelligence, material science, pharmaceuticals, finance, security, general computing and medicine. This meetup provides an opportunity for entrepreneurs, developers, existing quantum computing businesses and researchers in London to share knowledge.

Since lockdown things have obviously moved online, and so we have partnered with Quantum London to benefit from their extensive series of webinars and online events. QL is curated by Paolo Cuomo (https://paolocuomo.medium.com/), Em Colonnella (https://www.linkedin.com/in/emcol/) and Ana Zardoshti (https://www.linkedin.com/in/anahita-zardoshti-a68b39161/)

All their events, plus other unaffiliated external events are listed on this MeetUp.

Quantum Computing for Finance #3

Online event

- What is the impact of quantum computing on cryptography and data?
- How is research advancing in this area?
- What does this mean for financial institutions?
- Which time frame are we looking at?

In this talk of Quantum London quantum computing for finance series, Joe Ghalbouni, CTO at QuRisk advisory, Head of Risk at the Quantum Strategy Institute and Associate Professor of Physics, addresses these, and other, fundamental questions about the intersection of quantum computing, cybersecurity, cryptography and data.

Join us next Thursday 28th of October at 18:00 GMT for another quantum for finance talk at Quantum London hosted by Esperanza Cuenca-Gómez.
