The Conference Focuses on Practical Uses For Industry and Governments
QC Ware, the company bringing quantum computing to the enterprise, announced today that it is organizing the 2nd annual Q2B conference in Mountain View, CA on December 10-12, 2018. Sponsored by IBM, Microsoft, Google, and others, Q2B’s mission is to stimulate quantum computing (QC) application development. Q2B is the leading forum for bringing together QC early adopters, hardware developers, and algorithm researchers. The emphasis is on practical quantum computing—using QC resources to solve real-world problems.
This year’s conference will again include a “Boot Camp” for early adopters, as well as presentations by leading QC hardware developers and half-day technical workshops exploring use cases in:
- Chemistry Simulation
- Machine Learning
Attendees will get a first-hand look at recent QC hardware and algorithm developments, as well as a chance to collaborate with some of the greatest minds in quantum computing. Conference participants include senior business and technology executives, heads of corporate research and innovation groups, enterprise architects, representatives from government agencies, researchers in the QC academic community, and venture capitalists.
John Preskill, Professor of Theoretical Physics and Director of the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter at California Institute of Technology, and Scott Aaronson, Professor of Computer Science and Director of the Quantum Information Center, University of Texas at Austin, will give keynote addresses on near- and long-term quantum computing applications and supremacy experiments, respectively.
Attendees will also hear from enterprises such as Airbus, Goldman Sachs, BMW, Citigroup, and BBVA—groups that are already prototyping applications for their businesses.
