Applied Quantum Computing for Today’s Military

April 28, 2021, 3-4 p.m.

An information-sharing event focused on The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and Quantum Computing

Applied Quantum Computing for Today’s Military

The Federal government has been focusing on the quantum industry and how this technology can be a disruptive force within the military. Congress included language in the FY21 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) asking the military to provide annual reports of problems they want to use quantum computing to help solve, and the ATARC Global Quantum Working Group is highlighting the art of the possible with today’s technology.

During this one-hour webinar presentation we will be hearing a Keynote from Congressman Jim Langevin, Chair of the Subcommittee on Cyber, Innovative Technologies & Information Systems for the House Armed Services Committee, who will discuss Congressional intent of quantum computing for the military.  There will also be a Military Logistics Demo from our partner’s at D-Wave.  A panel discussion on Applied Quantum Computing for Today’s Military based on the White Paper produced by ATARC’s Global Quantum Project Team, and leaders from the quantum industry in the United States including the QED-C and the Quantum Industry Coalition.
