Fighting Climate Change with Quantum Technology?


Let’s talk about the impact that quantum technology can have on our ability to tackle one of the most pressing concerns in the world today: climate change. Consider the possibility of having access to entirely new kinds of data about climate change. What if we had sensors that were so good that we could measure the impact of a forest fire on melting polar ice caps, or the effect changes in air traffic in the US have on air quality in Tokyo. During this panel you will hear from senior leaders from the private and public sector on why they think quantum technology, the most cutting edge technology, could revolutionize the fight against climate change. The panelists will also cut through the hype and discuss what the technology won’t accomplish in the near future.
