Meetup Replay – Quantum Acceleration, Randomness as a Service, the State of the Quantum Industry

We had the pleasure to hear:

Professor Irfan SIDDIQI (UC Berkeley, LBNL). Irfan leads the Ad­vanced Quantum Testbed that focuses on superconducting quantum computing technologies and has recently taken the direction of the new DOE funded Quantum Systems Accelerator.
Cameron FOREMAN (Cambridge Quantum Computing). CQC launched recently the first cloud-based Quantum Random Number Generator service with verification.
Michel KUREK (Ecole Polytechnique). Michel made an introduction to his recently published and very documented report on patents, scientific publications and VC funding in Quantum technologies.

Meetup Replay – Quantum Orchestration, Quantum-Safe Cybersecurity, Building the Ecosystem

We had the great pleasure to host:
Michele MOSCA, professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing at University of Waterloo and co-founder of EvolutionQ, about quantum-safe data and communications security and his experience as an entrepreneur ;
Itamar SIVAN, CEO of Quantum Machines (Israel, US), on a mission to revolutionize computing. He told us about his company’s technology, Quantum Orchestration, and how he sees the future of Quantum Computing.
Jane GARRETT, Director of QTEC (Quantum Technology Enterprise Center) at University of Bristol (UK) and Maria PAWLOWSKA, Director at Visnea (Poland), debated on the construction of the Quantum Ecosystem with our own Robert MARINO

Meetup Replay – Superconducting Qubits, Quantum Machine Learning & Quantum Markets

We had the pleasure to host:
Alexandre BLAIS, Professor and Scientific Director at Institut Quantique / Sherbrooke University, an overview of science and technology in the field of superconducting qubits;
Iordanis KERENIDIS, CNRS Senior researcher & head of quantum algorithms at QC Ware, on Quantum Machine Learning and quantum applications;
Jean-Christophe ELOY, CEO of Yole Development, will present their latest study on the industrial perspective on quantum markets.

Meetup Replay : Quantum Venture Capital, Co-Design Quantum Computers, Quantum Networks

We had the pleasure to host on May 12th:
– SAMIR KUMAR (M12, Microsoft’s venture fund), OLIVER KAHL (MIG), CHRISTOPHE JURCZAK (Quantonation) for a debate on investing in quantum technologies
– ENRIQUE SOLANO, CEO at IQM Germany: Co-Design of quantum computers

Meetup Replay: QC for Finance, Open Source Quantum Computing, Sensing with Diamonds

We had the pleasure to host, on April 28th :
– ROMAN ORUS and ENRIQUE LIZASO, respectively CSO and CEO at leading quantum software startup Multiverse will tell us about their approach of the financial use cases, and introduce us to their Quantum inspired technology based one tensor networks
– NATHAN SHAMMAH, CTO at the non-profit US based Unitary Fund, lead developer of QuTip and physicist, will share his views on Open Source development for the Quantum Computing community, and building a global Quantum ecosystem
– MATHIEU MUNSCH, CEO of Qnami, has co-founded one of the leading companies in the Quantum sensing sector, and will introduce us to a fascinating technology with short term applications in imaging

Meetup Replay: coding with atoms, disruptive nano-photonics for IR sensing, quantum computing for biopharma

Watch the replay on YouTube of our Meetup held on April 14th, 2020 featuring:
LOIC HENRIET, software engineer at Pasqal, who introduced the software stack of their unique platform, and demonstrated how to access it and leverage its unique capabilities
SIMONE DE LIBERATO, professor and University Research Fellow of the Royal Society at Southampton University, gave us a primer on the fascinating science of Ultra Strong Coupling and showed us his path towards real life applications of nano-photonics
JEAN-FRANÇOIS BOBIER, partner at Boston Consulting Group, presented his report “Will Quantum Computing Transform Biopharma R&D?“, more relevant than ever in times of Covid19

The access to Pasqal’s emulator through Cirq is on GitHub/Cirq

Meetup Replay: Computational Drug Design, Photonic Quantum Computing and Student Entrepreneurship

In times of Covid19, for the first time a LLQ Meetup has happened exclusively online, which had a collateral effect: we had many attendees from out of Paris, from the US, Canada, the UK and elsewhere. Up to 160 participants during the session were able to listen to our highly talented speakers, and interact with them:

– Christophe Jurczak, partner at Quantonation and co-founder of Le Lab Quantique

– Jean-Philip Piquemal, professor at Sorbonne University and University of Texas – Austin, about his work on Computational Drug Design and his entrepreneurial activities

– Richard Murray and Josh Nunn, respectively CEO and CTO at Orca Computing, leading London based startup in Optical Quantum Computing

– Karl Thibault, program manager Science and Entrepreneurship at Institut Quantique / Université de Sherbrooke

The presentations are available for download and you can watch the replay on our YouTube channel.
