Emerging Quantum Information Technologies and Applications

Conference abstract:

Quantum information technologies represent fundamentally new and rapidly shifting paradigms of traditional science and engineering disciplines including computing, communication and sensing. They are poised to have high impacts in data analytics, cyber security, material and pharmaceutical discoveries.  This two-day workshop brings together leading experts in emerging fields of quantum information science and engineering across the globe to discuss exciting visions, challenges and opportunities within this emerging technological revolution. Hosted by the University of Chicago Yuen Campus in Hong Kong in partnership with the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Pritzker School for Molecular Engineering, this workshop provides a platform for exchanging ideas, forging collaborations and bridging scientific advances with global leaders.  

Key topics include developments in long-distance quantum communication and networking; advances in coherent quantum materials and devices for quantum information; new architectures for quantum computing and information processing; and emerging applications for quantum machines. Platforms for devices encompass semiconductors, superconductors, and trapped atoms as the basis for creating, storing, and communicating quantum information for nascent quantum technologies.
