Workshop 03 - 16:00 to 17:30

Quantum computing: What's new in QuBits?
Chaired by Philippe Duluc, Chief Technology Officer, Atos

Many quantum computer technologies have been explored and demonstrated over the last two decades, but the last few years have seen an acceleration in the announcement of platforms and in the emergence of new players. This workshop will present some of the most interesting recent evolutions carried by a wide range of players, from start-ups to global companies. Our speakers will share their insights and achievements on Rydberg-atom qubits, Google’s quantum supremacy, photonic qubits, spin qubits and topological qubits. The workshop will start with an update on the French National Quantum Plan.

With the participation of:

Philippe Duluc. Chief Technology Officer, Atos
