    CANCELLED

    Following the University's guidance this event is now cancelled.

    Join C2ST to learn how Quantum Computing capabilities are changing the way we process data and what that means for the world.

    About this Event:

    We experience the benefits of classical computing every day. However, there are challenges that today’s systems will never be able to solve. For problems above a certain size and complexity, we don’t have enough computational power on Earth to tackle them. To stand a chance at solving some of these problems, we need a new kind of computing.

    Quantum computers could spur the development of new breakthroughs in science, medications to save lives, machine learning methods to diagnose illnesses sooner, materials to make more efficient devices and structures, financial strategies to live well in retirement, and algorithms to quickly direct resources such as ambulances. Learn more about how close these breakthroughs are and the ways that quantum computers are already improving our lives from a panel of experts.

    Featured Guests:

    Dr. Prem Kumar: Northwestern Univerity - Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering

    Dr. Farah Fahim: FERMI Lab - Deputy Head of Fermi Lab.
