Quantum Computing: A Re-Evolution by Ramsés Gallego
EGN Invites you to join EGN Cross Functional Virtual Event: Quantum Computing: A Re-Evolution by Ramsés Gallego.
Date/Time: Thursday, April 29, 2021. 4pm networking. 4.30pm - 6pm interactive workshop.
Quantum Computing: A Re-Evolution
Quantum Computing modifies many of things we take for granted in businesses today. The way we create and keep secret is challenged and quantum technologies disrupt different vertical, many sectors. Built on the theory of quantum physics, if quantum computers would exist they would represent a gigantic leap in computing power and the way we use technology. But do they exist and what can we do with them? There are massive investments around the world in this discipline and, in the very same way that the space race and the fight for nuclear power have been instrumental in recent decades, we are experiencing now not an era of changes but the change of an era. By attending this session attendees will understand the actual situation of quantum technologies and what they mean for organizations, the challenges we will encounter and, most importantly, the impact it has on the way we govern the Enterprise IT. Since quantum computing is not an evolution. It’s a Re-Evolution.
