Are you interested in seeing the next wave of computer technology?
Mark your calendar for Mar. 30, when Douglas College will host D-Wave Systems’ experimental physicist Mauricio Reis for a discussion on quantum computing.
Held at the New Westminster campus’ Aboriginal Gathering Place (Room 4650), 4:30-5:30pm, the event – titled Quantum Computing: The Start of a New Era – features Reis explaining how the technology will eventually become part of everyone’s lives.
The event will also focus on D-Wave’s approach to quantum computing. The Burnaby-based company is backed by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, NASA and the CIA, among others, and is a leader in the development, fabrication and integration of superconducting quantum computers.
The ground-breaking technology – which was featured in Time Magazine, alongside D-Wave – harnesses the power of subatomic particles and has the potential to create safer airplanes, discover distant planets, detect cancer earlier and more.
Hosted by Canada’s Association of Information Technology Professionals (CIPS), and Douglas College’s faculties of Science and Technology and Commerce and Business Administration, the hour-long event will shed light on how quantum mechanics can be harnessed to process information.
This event is free and open to the public.
