QS & Caltech Innovator Series - The Quantum Revolution: Closer Than You Think?



DECEMBER 22, 2017

QS Investors Innovator Series with Caltech     

The QS Investors Innovator Series with Caltech is a joint project between QS Investors and Caltech. Our Innovator Series is about innovation, innovators and the disruption they are creating. The Series is a collaborative discussion bringing together our networks of people in different industries, business, arts, and academia to support the work that is being done in information, science, technology and engineering. It is a salon style presentation and discussion hosted by Janet Campagna (CEO) & James Norman (President) at QS Investors New York City office. Leading minds from various backgrounds are invited to join the discussion with these disruptive forces from Caltech's impressive multi-disciplinary environment.

The Quantum Revolution: Closer Than You Think?

Conversations with two of Caltech’s most recognized researchers working at the intersection of computation and quantum physics.  Professors Adam Wierman, Computational Mathematic Sciences, and Oskar Painter, Applied and Quantum Physics, discuss groundbreaking  discoveries that are shaping the next generation of computational and communication devices, and how these devices will revolutionize the technology industry in the coming decade.

Computation is disrupting science and engineering, creating entirely new disciplines.  Fields such as sustainability, health care, chemistry, biology, economics, applied physics and the environment are being upended by computational advances—from mapping the human genome to understanding the works of the brain to modeling climate change and big data.  These breakthroughs have the potential to have a transformative impact on diverse sectors, from health and medicine to economics and finance.
