Quantum computing is considered the technology of the future, with the potential to revolutionize fields as diverse as computing, economics and finance, but also medicine, chemistry, energy, logistics and cybersecurity. A promising technology, as will be shown by the experts who on Friday, 27 October, will meet at the conference “Salamanca Tech. Quantum Technology“, organized by the AIR Institute.
The Councilor for Economic Development, Commerce, Markets and Youth, Pedro Martínez Córdoba; and the Vice Rector for Academic Planning of the University of Salamanca, David Díez Martín; will join me in welcoming the attendees at the new headquarters of the AIR Institute at 10 am.
The event has been enriched with the organization of two lectures; at 10:30 a.m., Pablo Cabricano Sánchez, head of Quantum at NTT Data Spain, will speak about the practical applications of quantum computing, and half an hour later, Guillermo Rivas Oliveros, an expert in quantum technology who recently joined the AIR Institute, will discuss the power of this technology in the world of finance.
After the break, it will be time to share our viewpoints. As President of the AIR Institute and Director of the BISITE Research Group, I will be in charge of moderating the roundtable on “Technology, Science and Engineering“, in which, in addition to Pablo Cabricano Sánchez, other experts will participate, including Vicente Matellán Olivera, General Director of the Castilla y León Supercomputing Center Foundation (SCAYLE); Juan Ignacio Benito Fiz, RPA and Data manager at NTT Data; Kevin Corella Nieto, centers service leader for AI Project/Service Development & Quantum Machine Learning at NTT Data; Manuel Pino García, postdoc at the Department of Fundamental Physics of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Salamanca; and Javier Parra Domínguez, coordinator of the Quantum Economics & Technology Experience Lab and Professor at the University of Salamanca.
This will be a thorough conference on the latest advances in quantum computing aimed at understanding the reasons why it is a strategic sector within multinationals.
