Future in flux? Global issues and national strategies for responsible quantum technology development

Breakout session - From QKD to quantum teleportation: Towards a quantum internet?

Nov 27, 2023 | 1:45 PM - 3:00 PM

Plenary room


In this breakout session, participants will discuss the advent of ultra-secure networks thanks to cryptography via the Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) method and assess the extent to which continued innovation may help scale this technology and address its enduring limitations. Discussions will ultimately seek to identify some of the key policy challenges in the field of quantum communication and explore the prospects of the so-called “quantum internet”, which promises to harness quantum entanglement to connect quantum devices and effectively teleport information.
