Quantum. Change. Disrupting Canberra.

This full day conference will examine how our established leadership, learning and technical approaches developed over the last 50 years for the digital age will need to change and adapt in a future where it will be possible for one single quantum computer to exceed the combined processing power of all of today’s computers.

 

 

 

Quantum. Change. Disrupting Canberra.


Quantum. Change. Disrupting Canberra. will examine how established leadership, learning and technical approaches, developed for a digital age, will need to adapt in a future where it will be possible for one single quantum computer to exceed the combined processing power of all of today’s computers.

We are looking forward to hosting 300+ ICT professionals from academia, government, mixed industry, and private and not-for-profit organisations at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra on 4 September 2018 for a fun and fruitful conference!

Streams and Topics

 

Thought provoking discussions that may arise across the conference streams are:

Leadership - Fasten Your Seatbelts
How do we prepare for a future enabled and disrupted by quantum computing where the pace and impact of technological and social change will be far greater than what we have experienced over the last 20 years?
Stream partner - Institute of Managers and Leaders (IML)


Education - Quantum Computing 101
What are the basics we need to know as teachers, and how is technology impacting our comfort levels for learning? 
Stream partner - Information Technology Educators ACT (InTEACT)
 

Data
Quantum Computing, Machine Learning and the Internet of Things are making products and services safer, more efficient and more useful. What do these technologies have in common? They rely on and produce data. If the data is not managed, poor data quality will constrain the effectiveness of any advances in technology.
Stream partner – Data Management Association (DAMA)

 

Cyber Security - Quantum Risk, Resilience and Cryptography
How do we prepare for a future where large-scale quantum computers will completely compromise the security of the internet as we know it?

 

Futures - Not in My Lifetime
What is the timeline for quantum computing? Is the future already here, but just not evenly dispersed?
Stream partner – ACS Young IT
