Hear panellist Bent Dalager share some insights on quantum technology’s potential, in which industries it could make an impact and how we should approach this science fiction-like, but very real technology.
The next digital reformation?
Missed the event?
Denmark is a scientific hub for progressing quantum technology and computing. With this rapidly developing technology at our fingertips, potential beneficiaries must consider their quantum-computing strategies. Companies like Microsoft and Novo Nordisk are already investing heavily in this disruptive endeavour as they recognise the possibilities and opportunities that quantum computing will bring – do you recognise them, too? If not, it’s time to.
For our CBS Lifelong Learning event on April 12th 2023, we dived into how qubits and fluid realities will come to influence industries and improve businesses in the future. Powered by an expert panel of researchers and enthusiasts from CBS, Kvantify and KPMG, topics and questions revolved around core challenges, cybersecurity, intellectual property, effects on markets and so on so forth.
By the end, the audience shared their thoughts on which problems quantum computing could solve, that we haven’t even thought of yet. Answers included time travel, mind reading and happiness.
