Event Details

Profiled as an intellectual capital, Sydney, New South Wales (NSW), is living up to its reputation and taking part in the global race to build a quantum computer. The City is edging closer every day and learning how to adapt to life in a quantum information world. Once the world experiences the power of quantum computing, it will open amazing opportunities.

How will quantum impact our lives and our future across different industries?

  • Defence
  • Predicting the weather
  • Predicting stock markets
  • Optimising speech, facial and object recognition
  • Driverless vehicles
  • Aircraft design
  • Targeting drug development to the patients' DNA
  • Traffic management and route developments
  • Medical research

The 21st century will be the quantum information century, as the properties of quantum physics are exploited to develop powerful new technologies for transmitting and processing information. Professor Michelle Simmons is leading the national Centre of Excellence to develop the science and technology of a global quantum information network, encompassing ultra-fast computation and absolutely secure quantum communication. Her group at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney is striving to be the first to build a silicon-based quantum computer with the potential to transform information processing.

This insightful and forward-thinking presentation will be hosted by Business Events Sydney (BESydney) and will be their fifth Vivid Ideas Sydney Speaker Series. Keynote speaker at this year's event will be Scientia Professor Simmons, who will be joined by others who are dedicatd to understanding the future of quantum information and how it will impact our lives.

If you are interested in creating a quantum world, this is a must attend event.

This event is presented by Business Events Sydney as part of Vivid Ideas 2017.

Access and Inclusion

  • Wheelchair accessible - Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.
  • Hearing loop - A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting. Many venues have an induction hearing loop system. Check if your venue has this system.
