Quantum Cyber Webinar

Is Quantum the New Technology for Tomorrow? As stated by subject matter experts, Quantum computing has more computer power, is faster, and much better at preserving and preventing attacks on data. Government and industry are exploring this technology, conducting pilots, and addressing where it would be beneficial to their operations.

Do you want your data to be safe and protected in ten or twenty years from now? Would you like a faster computing process in place to prevent attacks on data? Will Quantum computer threaten the current encryption infrastructure? What are the plans for using Quantum in the pilots today and in the future. If you would like answers to these questions, join the ACT-IAC Quantum educational webinar that will provide an overview of Quantum, what it is used for today, what the barriers are to Quantum Innovation and how to “experiment” with it today.

If you are government or industry, this educational forum will provide an update on security and encryption, who are doing pilots today, what the barriers are to Quantum innovation, and what future plans are being considered for Quantum computing. Keynotes are Conner Prochaska, Chief Commercialization Officer and Director Office of Technology Transition, Department of Energy, who will discuss Energy's Quantum Pilot, and Paul Stimers, Executive Director, Quantum Industry Coalition, who will discuss the activities of the Coalition.

This is a learning, sharing and understanding webinar to further educate government, industry and academia on the power of Quantum.
