description

Quantum computing offers a more sophisticated computing model that has significantly increased computer power, is faster, and will lend itself to a Quantum-Smart workforce. 

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, ACT-IAC will be hosting an educational session on what Quantum is, what it is used for today and in the future, what the barriers are to Quantum Innovation, and how to "experiment" with it today.   

objectives

This is a learning, sharing, and understanding half-day forum to further educate government, industry and academia.
