Is America ready for super-charged AI? Planning for the Quantum Future
When: Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2021, 1– 2pm EST
Where: Virtual
Who:
[Moderator] Miles Taylor, Senior Fellow, R Street Institute
Chris Fall, PhD, Senior Advisor, President’s Office, Center for Strategic and International Studies

Description:
Flying cars. Miracle medicines. Robots with emotions. These were concepts of a distant future, but rapid advances in quantum computing technology are leading policymakers to realize that the future is closer than we thought.
 
Quantum machines are poised to have real-world applications in this decade and super-charge artificial intelligence in the next. These advances will help to solve previously unsolvable problems—from healthcare to medicine—while also posing a major test to U.S. economic and national security—from threats to standard encryption to more sophisticated weapons systems. 
 
But how close are we to reaching these milestones?
 
This panel will gather experts to discuss the public policy implications of advances in quantum
computing, how America’s rivals are surging forward in this emerging technology space and what the United States must do to remain at the forefront.
