What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in Quantum Computing and Quantum Information in the Washington DC area. I started this group to find and meet the people around who will do events and participate in the discussion of the topics related to Quantum Computing.

E-meet and Greet Quantum Technologists: Panel Discussion

Topic: E-meet and Greet Quantum Technologists: Panel Discussion Topic and Abstract of the speaker Dr. Araceli Venegas-Gomez, Founder and CEO of QURECA Ltd Topic: "Supporting the quantum workforce through a common language" Abstract: From academia to industry, the field of quantum technologies is highly collaborative as we enter the second quantum revolution. QURECA (Quantum Resources and Careers) aims to create a link between the different stakeholders in the quantum community through a common language, and to generate global opportunities with quantum technologies. QURECA provides a range of professional services, and the solution to the quantum workforce skills bottleneck: the first online platform for quantum training and resourcing. Topic and Abstract of the speaker Dr. Faisal Khan, A mathematician and serves as a Technology Advisor to Quantum Computing Inc Topic: "Innovative pairings: ALTAIR 8800 + Microsoft and Apple I + MOS Technology 6502 chip, some lessons for the quantum technology ecosystem" Abstract: The founding product of Microsoft Corporation was the Altair BASIC, and interpreter for the Altair 8800 microcomputer, allowing the user to execute programs on this particular computing hardware. In contrast to this initial software product of Microsoft, the founding product of Apple was the Apple I personal computer, a product that was primarily a hardware achievement. Both products made their inventors extremely successful. A similar question of whether to invest in hardware or software development is also raised in the nascent quantum computing ecosystem. I will discuss the case of Microsoft and Apple and use it to address this question. Topic and abstract of the speaker Dr. Terrill Frantz, A professor at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. Topic: “Pivoting from classical to quantum computing – a story of one man’s journey” Abstract: This talk will describe a personal journey of one’s transition from a life-long career in classical computing to recently pivoting into quantum computing. Some lite reflections on the adventure to-date will be presented and various lessons-learned will be pointed out which may—perhaps—bring comfort others on a similar journey. This talk will include some perspectives on the larger ecosystem-wide dimensions of the quantum phenomenon – technologically and socially. Here are their bios: Dr. Araceli Venegas-Gomez, Founder and CEO of QURECA Ltd. Dr. Araceli Venegas-Gomez founded her own company called QURECA (Quantum Resources and Careers). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Terrill Frantz is a professor at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. He has recently redirected his attention to quantum computing. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dr. Khan is a mathematician working in the area of quantum information geometry to develop robust methods for mitigating noise in all aspects of computing. He serves as a Technology Advisor to Quantum Computing Inc. and Dark Star Quantum Labs. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Moderator: Mr. Paul Dowling s founder and CEO of Mindstream AI, a specialist consultancy focused on AI . He is involved in designing and running the data-centric health startup accelerator, KQ Labs, for The Francis Crick Institute and similar programmes involving AI. This has lead to taking a driving role in developing the London Kings Cross Knowledge Quarter deep tech ecosystem that includes organisations such as Google Deepmind, The Alan Turing Institute and Open Data Institute.
