Who invests in Quantum Technologies: The leadership of Google, Rigetti and Airbus, as well as the Skolkovo Foundation and Gazprombank, with the participation of the head of the European Quantum Program and the World Economic Forum, will discuss the markets for quantum technologies and their impact on the global economy.
The Russian Quantum Center, the Roscongress Foundation and the State Corporation Rosatom announced the fourth international online discussion as part of the Quantum of the Future project.
On June 25, at 18:00 Moscow time, on the Russian Quantum Center YouTube channel, the fourth discussion “Quantum technology markets: who invests in them and why?” . Speakers will discuss key markets for quantum technologies, the creation of start-ups, existing companies in the field of quantum sensors, communications and computing, as well as major international quantum programs and their role in promoting commercial high-tech quantum-based products. effects.
The supervisor will be Ruslan Yunusov, head of the Rosatom project to create a quantum computer in Russia. All speakers in the discussion will be connected remotely using the Zoom service, and viewers will be able to ask their questions directly.
List of participants for the fourth debate (June 25 at 6 pm):
- Hartmut Neven – CTO of Google, head of development for several key technologies at the company, including robotics, human-machine interfaces, quantum artificial intelligence, etc.;
- Thierry Potter – Head of Quantum Technologies at Airbus, Head of Airbus Blue Sky, Strategic Development Advisor under the Quantum Technologies Flagship Program of the European Commission;
- Tommaso Calarco – author and one of the leaders of the European Program for the Development of Quantum Technologies, Professor at the Jülich Research Center.
- Dmitry Zwers – Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors of Gazprombank PJSC
- Arkady Dvorkovich – Head of the Skolkovo Foundation.
Governments of countries (USA, China, Great Britain, Russia, Singapore, Australia, India, Japan) and private companies (Google, IBM, Microsoft, Alibaba, Amazon) are investing in quantum technologies.
In addition, research groups at leading research universities form many spin-offs and start-ups that attract large investments, “explains Ruslan Yunusov. – For example, ID Quantique, whose agreement with the Korean operator SK Telecom is estimated at $ 130 million, emerged. From a scientific group at the University of Geneva.
There are more and more of these stories and they are happening all over the world. This is a global competition that takes place at all levels.”
The online meeting series is supported by Maker Media, the business initiative Friends For Leadership in partnership with PGBgroup2.0 and the popular science publication N+1.
