Quantum Computing Lecture with Michael Brett
Sponsored by Escape Velocity, a local DC nonprofit founded by Harvard alumna and NASA vet Mandy Sweeney
The world is obsessed with understanding data as it continues to grow exponentially. Technology is advancing at a brisk pace to meet the challenge of “Big Data” with machine learning, cognitive computing, and quantum computing. Michael Brett, CEO of QxBranch, will discuss the current state of the art and what’s next as QxBranch pioneers commercial uses of quantum computing. No technical background or experience needed to enjoy this lively speaker.
Also learn more about the Museum of Science Fiction, and how to volunteer for our annual educational convention!
