Quantum Computers: How They Work and What They’ll Mean for BIG DATA and Business

Presented by SGInnovate. Partnered with Centre for Quantum Technologies and NSCC, Singapore

What is a quantum computer?
How will it change the world?
What is state-of-the-art?

Quantum computing was ranked as one of the top 10 breakthrough technologies in 2017 by MIT Technology Review, and Morgan Stanley has predicted it could help double the value of the high-end computing market to reach $10 billion in the next decade. While a fully-fledged quantum computer is yet to come, development over the past five years has been fast. The promise of such machines to massively outperform classical computers at some tasks makes quantum computing a potentially disruptive technology. Applications include quantum speedups for artificial intelligence, financial modelling, drug design, and big data analysis.

At this event, we will discuss the latest global developments, the position of Singapore in this new quantum world and the latest efforts by the quantum hardware lab at Google. The event will feature an introduction to quantum computing, its applications and a fireside chat with the speakers.
