A New Approach to Harnessing the Potential of Quantum Computing


Quantum computing is a reality that many public servants are interested in and want to know more about. Hosted in collaboration with the National Research Council, this event will focus on a different approach to harnessing the power of quantum computation called quantum annealing.

Quantum annealing is a type of quantum computing that offers a quantum approach to solving optimization problems. It has potential applications in science, finance, scheduling and logistics, drug design and a range of other engineering and technology domains.

During this event, experts from world-leading Canadian companies, public servants and academics will showcase how they are developing commercial applications of quantum annealing and help you better understand the potential of this promising tool.
