Industry in the Quantum Age

This workshop will profile state of the art quantum technologies, addressing both the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.


Join us for an industry-led workshop on emerging Quantum Technologies.

Quantum theory is little understood outside the scientific community, but it offers huge potential for industry and society. In future, quantum devices such as computers, clocks and communications systems could all be more powerful - by an order of magnitude - than today's conventional systems.

Quantum devices currently only exist in prototype form in the laboratory, but they are already demonstrating enormous potential: storing, processing and transmitting information with efficiencies going way beyond classical physics. However, developing quantum devices robust enough to be mass-produced outside the lab remains a scientific and technological challenge.

Realising the commercial opportunities of quantum will require a high degree of interdisciplinary collaboration, and greater public understanding of Quantum Physics. In this spirit of inter-disciplinary collaboration, the workshop will bring together pioneering scientific researchers with the business community, entrepreneurs, and the general public.

This workshop, which is free to attend, will profile state of the art quantum technologies, addressing both the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. The format of the workshop is designed to be interactive, with presentations from quantum pioneers in academia and industry, a demonstration session featuring new quantum devices and plenty of opportunities for Q&A.

The workshop is divided into three sessions, each consisting of four 20 minute presentations. Speakers include Professor Sir Peter Knight, Head of Physics at Imperial College London; Professor Herschel Rabitz, Princeton University; Helen Margolis, National Physics Laboratory; and industry speakers from Hitatchi, MagiQ, Toshiba and HP.

Places at this event are limited, so we advise early registration. This workshop is organised by the Quantum Technologies Group, a knowledge integration community funded by The Cambridge-MIT Institute.
