Event description
A discussion on the opportunities in Quantum Computing. Meet and hear from *the* most influential CEOs and founders worldwide!

About this Event

Hope your New Decade is off to a terrific start! Don't miss out on this phenomenal opportunity to kick-start your year!

**Light fare and drinks included**

MITEF DC is hosting *the* Quantum Computing discussion event that impacts our Next Gen workforce. We have a stellar roundtable of CEO and founder speakers from Rigetti Computing, IonQ, ColdQuanta and the Quantum Economic Development Consortium. We’ll discuss founder success stories, the real opportunity for entrepreneurs in quantum and focus on how we ready the next generation of programmers, business leaders and emerging growth companies for commercial quantum.

Check out our amazing speakers:

Bo Ewald | President & CEO at ColdQuanta, Inc.

Chris Monroe, Ph.D. | Co-Founder and Chief Scientist at IonQ

Joseph Broz, Ph.D. | Vice President SRI International -and- Executive Director and Governing Board Chairman, The Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C)

Michael Brett | SVP of Applications at Rigetti Computing

Quantum computing is the next revolution in computing and it is here ... join us to learn more! Here are some fast facts and links to learn more.

“Classical” Computers vs. Quantum Computers — bits vs. qubits.

Classical computers like your laptop, processes — text, images, videos, etc. — rely on large strings of 0s and 1s, or bits. At its core, a bit represents one state or another, such as whether a light bulb is on or off, or if an electrical circuit is connected or not. In modern computers, a bit is generally represented by an electrical voltage or current pulse.

Quantum computers, in contrast, rely on qubits. Just like binary bits, qubits form the basis of computing, with one giant difference: qubits are generally super-conducting electrons or other types of subatomic particles. Unsurprisingly, managing qubits is a huge scientific and engineering challenge.

Because qubits live in the quantum realm, they have some crazy quantum properties. Qubits can be both on and off — AT THE SAME TIME!
