Kimara Naicker, PhD Researcher, Quantum Research Group, University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa – Quantum-Enabled Business Advantage
Quantum mechanics describes how nature works at a fundamental level, hence, quantum computing is so well suited to simulating similar processes and systems. Furthermore, the combination of traditional machine learning with quantum algorithms evolves AI models in a way that presents solutions to complex problems that arise in work environments. Quantum technologies are often referred to as the ‘second quantum revolution’ or ‘quantum 2.0’. Quantum computing is nearing a phase of commercialization that may change our world. Those who adopt quantum’s unique ability to solve particular types of problems may be at an advantage to achieve breakthroughs that birth new business models. Such organisations are already aligning with the emerging quantum computing ecosystem to become “quantum ready.”
This talk will discuss the paradigm shift that quantum computing represents for business and explain why your enterprise may need to act now.
