Co-sponsored by: SWE, Raytheon

Professional Development event on Quantum Computing presented by Dr. Christopher Savoie, hosted by IEEE and SWE, sponsored by Raytheon.

Dr. Savoie will provide a broad overview of quantum computing: what it is, how it is different from classical computing and what the implications and use cases are for broad areas of technology. He will give a brief overview of the various hardware architecture approaches to realizing quantum bits, as well as the various software and algorithmic approaches being designed to harness these new hardware paradigms. Finally, Dr. Savoie will offer an industry perspective on current workforce development needs and opportunities in this emerging field, including more inclusive visa and immigration strategies, as well as much needed progress in gender diversification.
