Session Partner: Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QEDC).
We are entering a new era of technology development for computing, communications, networking and sensing: the quantum era. Leading companies in the semiconductor and information technology space are mobilizing to find ways to harness quantum mechanical phenomena to accelerate computing, communicate more securely, and enable vastly improved navigational and locational services. Realizing this vision—and the huge market opportunities that are on the horizon— requires the coordination of the entire quantum "technology stack". In this session, you will hear from the Quantum Economic Development Consortium, which is the group that brings industry from across the supply chain together to address enabling technology, standards and metrics, and workforce needs and will guide the US government's investment priorities in quantum technology R&D. You will also hear from industry leaders in the rapidly emerging quantum technology industry.
