Fireside Chat: Demystifying Quantum Computing and Its Future
Thursday, April 06, 2023 at 1:30pm to 2:00pmVirtual Event
Quantum computing offers enormous promise. The technology could transform many industries, such as pharmaceuticals, and potentially destabilize others, such as cybersecurity. However, most quantum hardware still remains in research labs, far from the scale needed to tackle commercial applications. What is holding today’s hardware back? What can we expect from quantum computers in the next five years? Research scientist Jeff Grover will join MIT Horizon writer Abby Smith to discuss the current state of quantum computing, how researchers are addressing hurdles to its development, and what excites him most about the technology’s future.
