Welcome to the Women in Tech Breakfast Date at EY House in Helsinki on February 1st !
We are closing in on the era of quantum! The progress of quantum computers has accelerated, and it is likely we will use quantum computers within 5-10 years from now. The entrance of quantum computers is anticipated to disrupt both businesses and whole sectors with an ambitious drive for speed, scale and quality. Quantum’s development in power, availability and stability is expected to be exponential but what are the strengths of a quantum computer and how can we use it today – and in the future?
