Workshop General Awareness Quantum Computing

The workshop General Awareness Quantum Computing introduces you to the impact that quantum computing will have on your organisation, and on businesses and society at large. The audience needs not have prior knowledge of quantum physics, but should possess common knowledge of everyday computers. When done, you will have a general understanding of the possibilities, opportunities and threats that we can expect from quantum computers in the future. 

  • Introduction to the principles of quantum computing
  • 3.5-hour workshop: no prior knowledge needed
  • Clear focus on business relevance: no difficult physics, but special attention to opportunities and threats
  • Independent and non-profit: we tell an honest story

More information

During the 3.5 hours the workshop takes, first some elementary concepts of quantum mechanics are explained. It becomes clear that a quantum computer has a tremendous potential to solve various problems, but there are formidable challenges in building the right soft- and hardware. Moreover, there exist many myths and suggestive promises about the possibilities of quantum computers, many of which turn out to be false. Together with other participants and the presenters, you will discuss how quantum computing influences your business and what you should do to create opportunities. One of Quantum.Amsterdam’s core values is to avoid hyping quantum technology, but rather to tell a balanced and honest story. We are grateful for collaboration with ING, Rabobank and ABN AMRO during the development of this workshop. 

The workshop is given online using Cisco Webex or MS Teams. English language is used.
