From technology to quantum processing units

Learn about the main large-scale quantum (LSQ) platforms and the practical hurdles to making quantum processing units (QPUs) a reality. The conference will end with an expert panel on the impact of quantum over the next decade. Participants will gain an overview of emerging  and more mature technologies and what it all means for the future.
