By exploiting the properties of quantum physics, quantum computing represents a fundamental paradigm shift: Quantum computing combines quantum physics and computer science. Qubits are based on the two fundamental concepts of superposition and entanglement. Unlike classical computing bits that have two states – 0 or 1 – a qubit can represent two states at the same time.

Optimisation problems like route planning, supplier management, and financial portfolio management are places where quantum’s unique ability to quickly find the optimal solution by analysing huge amounts of heterogeneous data would work well. AI and machine learning algorithms are perfect candidates for quantum processing. In these sessions we will explain what quantum computing is bringing and its impact.

In the first session on Wednesday, we will also present European projects and associations, QuIC www.euroquic.org, and describe different use cases and practical examples

In the second session on Friday, we will give you an overview of research in quantum computing, and also market trends, ecosystem, challenges and vision.
