3 Jun 2020 | Quantum for Business and Society: MSc Course with Atos

Knowledge partner QuSoft and business partner Atos are joining forces in the new collaborative course “Quantum in Business and Society”. This new course is given at the University of Amsterdam to give students a clear picture about the impact that future quantum computers will have on industry and society.

Quantum in Business and Society discusses the benefits that quantum technology can offer, but also the dangers. It teaches students to transform academic knowledge into useful use cases for business. Frederik Kerling, Senior Quantum Expert at Atos will focus on developing new use cases, engaging business markets & the challenges and knowledge gaps that companies are currently experiencing.

Moreover, in this course participants will get in touch with Google’s Cirq software package and simulate a concrete optimization problem. You will get challenged to think about how you can improve quantum algorithms and make them more applicable for society.

The event is finished.
