The Department of Computer Science at the College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) at Drexel University is pleased to present the following talk:
"Introduction to Quantinuum"
Featuring Mark Jackson, PhD, senior quantum evangelist at Quantinuum
Quantum computing is fast approaching commercial applicability. In this talk, Jackson will introduce the basics of this field including theory, and technology, applications, and commercial status. These include solutions for drug discovery, material science, finance, and cybersecurity. He will also describe how one programs a quantum computer methods used to optimize its efficiency. Jackson will finish by describing Quantinuum's “TKET” open-source architecture-agnostic quantum compiler.
This free event is open to all Drexel faculty, professional staff and current undergraduate and graduate students. No RSVP is necessary.
