EVENT DETAILS
The Disruptive Power of Quantum Computing

October 13, 2021 from 4 pm to 5 pm eastern time

ABOUT THE EVENT:
Quantum computing harnesses the phenomena of quantum mechanics to deliver a huge leap forward in computational power to solve certain problems.

MEET THE PANELISTS
1. Mark Mattingley-Scott. Disruptive Technologists' Board Member Mark Mattingley-Scott is a former Quantum Computing Architect for 30 years for IBM who just started his exciting new job as General Manager EMEA for Quantum Brilliance. He will talk about his story & what innovative new challenges he is taking on. A veteran of the IT industry
and pioneer of IBM's Quantum Computing program, he will be leading this 3 person panel.

2. Petra Sderling: Petra ran teams & innovation projects in a large multinational corporation (Nokia in Finland), founded & managed two startup companies in New York City (mobile apps) & New Orleans, LA (Real estate 3D). Most recently I work as a Senior Advisor the Finnish government's innovation funding agency, Business Finland. I live & work in Colorado. I advise the Finnish government on quantum, space tech, smart mobility, AI, & cybersecurity.

3. Danika Hannon: Danika Hannon is a leader of the MN Quantum Computing Meetup, served on the Women in Quantum Advisory Board, volunteered for a quantum computing & AI startup called Boltz.ai, & became a Relationship Manager with Cambridge Quantum Computing, as well as the Deputy Head & IQSD Chair for the Quantum Strategy Institute.

Quantum computers will soon be able to solve complex problems that today's most powerful supercomputers can't solve, & never will. But now quantum is going to a new level - it's entering a new dimension. We are referring to computations using a completely new physical principle that has never been used before - we're talking about computational power being available for much less energy & effort.

Major areas that will be affected by quantum:

1. Material Simulations: Materials can be anything in the real world, such as a pharmaceutical molecule. Aspirin & antiviral medicines are materials - things that can be simulated. Take clinical trials: Maybe in mapping DNA we get to the point where we can simulate molecules to such an extent that we don't need to do trials at all.

2. Manufacturing: The second area is optimization. For instance, optimizing the entire supply chain of some manufacturing industries - there are now calculations that say that the energy savings would be significant & an important factor in mitigating the effects of global warming.

3. AI & Machine Learning: There are a lot of things you need to do in machine learning which can be accelerated massively by quantum computing. Even so, the technology is still nascent - the paradox of quantum computing is that the industry is still working on the algorithms & the methods to do things.

This is what is happening: industries are waiting for enough Qubits, i.e.: the quantum-mechanical analog of a classical Bit. Basically, how many Qubits do you have?

So, how disruptive is quantum computing? Very!
