Sundown Drinks: Firing up the Quantum Future
Presented by SGInnovate

At this quantum tech event, we have Prof Michael J Biercuk, CEO & Founder of Q-CTRL and one of the world's leading authorities on quantum physics and technology, present a keynote on 'Starting Up the Quantum Future'.

Quantum technology, harnessing quantum physics as a resource, promises to be as transformational in the 21st century as harnessing electricity was in the 19th century. In this presentation, Michael will introduce the emerging field of quantum tech and describe how he and colleagues around the world are working to build a greenfield industry.

Beginning with an intuitive picture of how quantum technology expands on the technological state-of-the-art, this presentation will inform about the potential and promise of exploiting quantum physics in computing and sensing. Michael will also introduce Q-CTRL, a global quantum tech startup headquartered in Australia, focused on making quantum technologies useful through quantum control engineering. This presentation will conclude with lessons for the deep tech founder seeking to transition from fundamental research to entrepreneurship.

Following his presentation, Michael will join a panel discussion on an overview of the global quantum economy and the future of quantum software, as well as why the focus on quantum software when quantum computers are not yet ready.
