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

Panel discussion - Quantum computing: From hype to advantage

Nov 27, 2023 | 12:25 PM - 1:30 PM

Plenary room


Quantum computing draws substantial interest, yet also generates significant hype, making it difficult for non-experts to separate the wheat from the chaff. In this session, panellists will take an honest look at the state of play and ask: What are the promises of quantum computing, and the challenges that remain to be overcome to achieve full-fledged quantum computers? Does quantum supremacy remain a distant prospect or are new approaches, such as hybrid quantum computing systems, the growing embrace of modularity, and the rise of quantum-as-a-service, already paving the way to a quantum advantage?
