Quantum computing isn’t just a possibility, it’s an inevitable next step. During his Keynote, "The Endless Impossibilities of Quantum Computing," whurley discusses how it will forever change the computing landscape and potentially the balance of international power. Countries around the world are investing billions to become the first quantum superpower. When we say an emerging technology represents a “paradigm shift,” it’s often hyperbole. In the case of quantum computing, it’s an understatement.

From advancing artificial intelligence and meteorology to driving breakthroughs in molecular modeling and particle physics, to creating next-gen cryptography, and even (potentially) threatening current technologies like bitcoin and blockchain, quantum computing will have an impact. Come discover what quantum computing is, where it’s been, where it’s going, and why it's important to you.
