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
BPI France, Le Lab Quantique and Quantonation organized during Deep Tech Week a workshop dedicated to the impact of the emerging threat of Quantum Computers on security, and the way to protect against it, both with Quantum technologies and Post Quantum cryptography.
COVID19 complicated attending for foreign participants, but it was nonetheless extremely successful and a good occasion for all stakeholders – government, large industry, startups, research institutions, venture capitalists – to share views.
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
