Quantum computing is truly disruptive. It is a whole new type of computing that provides a fundamentally different way of solving very hard computations very quickly. Quantum computing creates new ways to approach computational problems that classical computers have problems with. In particular, simulating complex systems including elements of the natural world itself.
However, like most emerging technologies particularly ones as complex as quantum, it has attracted a disproportional amount of hype and misconception. These misconceptions range from “it won’t be around for decades” to “it will destroy all encryption/blockchain/bitcoin” via “we don’t need to care yet as it’s an all or nothing technology.”
In this webinar, experts from HFS, and Atos will tackle some of these misunderstanding and present the reality looking at the current state of Quantum computing technology and how it potentially impacts businesses.
Addressing these key topics:
So what exactly is quantum computing?
How does it differ from traditional computing? When will practical quantum computing exist? Where do we think quantum will be in 1 year, 5 years, and ten years time?
What are the likely implications of Quantum computing and what, if anything, should enterprise organizations do to prepare?
What are the real-world applications of quantum now and in the near future?
