Event description

Description

A disruptive technological revolution is fast approaching: the quantum revolution. The race to develop the first quantum computer is one that America cannot afford to lose. The national security of the U.S. and its allies hangs in the balance, as well as the role of democracy in spreading information technology. Quantum computers promise advances in medicine, manufacturing, defense, imaging, sensing, and more. They also pose a severe threat to the security of nearly all existing encrypted data. At the same time, quantum cybersecurity promises unparalleled levels of data security.

On October 17, in conjunction with DC CyberWeek, Hudson Institute will host a high-level symposium on the risks and opportunities of quantum technology. Hudson Senior Fellow Dr. Arthur Herman, author of Freedom’s Forge: How American Business Produced Victory in World War II, and Dr. Aaron VanDevender, Chief Scientist at Founders Fund, will engage with leading experts from industry, government, and academia to explore the security and policy implications of the coming quantum revolution. Speakers will discuss quantum computing, quantum cybersecurity, and the international quantum scene, as well as the merits of a U.S. National Quantum Initiative.

A brief introductory presentation on quantum technology will be given at the outset of the conference. The program will begin at 9:00 am and will be live streamed on Hudson’s homepage. Doors will open at 8:30 am. A networking reception will follow the closing remarks.
