You’ve heard the term, but what does it really mean? How does quantum computing differ from what we have now? Where are the opportunities for Canada as these powerful new technologies are developed?
Join David Cory, Canada Excellence Research Chair Laureate from the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing to gain insight into the future of quantum and its applications.
11:30 a.m. – noon Registration and Networking
noon-1:30 p.m. Lunch and Main Event
David Cory is a leading global innovator in experimental quantum physics and quantum engineering, whose work is already being used in a range of applications, from the medical field to the oil industry.
Before accepting his Canada Excellence Research Chair at the University of Waterloo, Cory was professor of nuclear engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he made significant breakthroughs in quantum information processing and other fields by advancing nuclear magnetic resonance methods. He is also an associate researcher at Canada’s Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, and is chair of the advisory committee for the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research.
Cory holds a PhD in physical chemistry from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. He also held two postdoctoral fellowships, through which he developed instrumentation and methods for magnetic resonance and imaging of solids. He held the first at the University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands, and the second as a National Research Council fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C.
