Quantum Computing at T50

World’s Top 50 Innovators 2019 – 23rd to 25th September 2019

The race is on between IBM, Google and Microsoft, to build the most powerful computers in the world. So what’s the magic that makes quantum computers work?

Quantum computing relies on the quirkiness of sub-atomic particles to exist in more than one state at a time. For example, in normal computing a single piece of information or bit can exist in two states: 1 or 0. However, quantum computing uses a system of quantum bits or qubits. Think of a qubit as an imaginary sphere. A normal bit can be in two states at either poles of the sphere. Thanks to a process called ”super-position” a qubit can be at any point on the sphere.

This means a computer using qubits can store massively greater amounts of information, use considerably less energy, and work at exponentially higher speeds than a classical computer. Comparing a classical computer to a quantum computer is like comparing a crack in the wall to the Grand Canyon..!

Top 50 innovator, Abhinav Kandala from IBM, is harnessing the power of quantum computing. Don’t miss Abhinav’s Codex Talk on how quantum computing will help us compute with the full power of nature to revolutionise the discovery of new medicines.

We have invited a stellar line up of scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and visionaries who are moving the world forward with the power of their technologies and ideas.

The format will be a series of Codex Talks. A Codex Talk is a concise presentation, lasting 15 minutes (or less), in which the speaker addresses a challenging question faced by their technology or industry today and ends with a bold prediction for the future.

Codex Talks are engaging, entertaining and elucidating. They give the audience something they can walk away with: valuable insights, actionable information, fresh perspectives, and renewed optimism.

All Codex Talks can be viewed from www.codex.com

About Codex

We selected the name “Codex” as Leonardo da Vinci was the embodiment of the Renaissance ideal. His “Codex”, or notebooks, are a testament to his interest in a multitude of subjects and to visionary ideas which were centuries ahead of their time. Codex’s mission is to evoke a similar spirit of enlightenment by inspiring technology leaders and entrepreneurs to apply their collective imaginations to deliver technologies that will continue to transform our lives. Whilst the creativity of Leonardo da Vinci was captured in his notebooks, Codex shares the wisdom of today’s great innovators via Codex Talks and events.
