Programme sessions

Quantum Applications

Quantum computing is in its infancy but developments have already given rise to start-up companies using quantum technologies in novel ways. These include Oxford Quantum Circuits, a new approach to scaling superconducting based qubits; Oxford HighQ, using microcavities for chemical sensing; and Verivin, analysing wine without opening the bottle!

We also explore software innovations with NQIT, IBM Q and Cambridge Quantum Computing – on the challenges for programming quantum computers and developments in creating new quantum applications.
