Quantum computing and how it will revolutionize the industry

Digital seminar · August 23

Welcome to the IndTech Silicon Valley Quantum Talk!

Grab your favourite cup of coffee and enjoy listening in to an inspiring keynote giving you a glimpse into the future of Quantum Computing from Silicon Valley experts, and how it will disrupt various fields.

Quantum algorithms and circuits can be developed and tested much faster now, due to new storage and data compute options released by world leading software and hardware providers such as Nvidia, Google, and IBM. This, in combination with research from world leading universities gives Quantum Computing a “5 year or never” timeline.

In five years, experts believe the world will know what actors and what countries will be forefront in the field of Quantum Computing. Since 2018, the investments into Quantum Computing startups in Silicon Valley have sky rocked.

During this hour, you will be listening in to a keynote followed by a panel on how Quantum Computing in a few years can revolutionize industries, such as energy production and power grids, life science and pharma, logistics, manufacturing, and production.

Who are you?

You are probably working with strategic questions at a Swedish Industry Company curious about how emerging tech can impact your industry and have a high interest in international collaborations and in innovation.
