Here’s What We’ll be Tuning into at DC’s First World Quantum Congress

Next week, DC is all set to host quantum computing companies and leaders from all over the world at the first-ever Quantum World Congress.

The three-day event, according to host Connected DMV, is designed to make the area a go-to spot for quantum companies and development. Destination DC, the University of Maryland, the Quantum Industry CoalitionGeorge Mason UniversityHoward University, the Mid-Atlantic Quantum Alliance, the MITRE Corporation and the National Quantum Literacy Network are all partners in the event.

“We imagine this as an annual event of a very high-level set of players: people who invest, people who regulate and establish policy, people who are inventing stuff and the people who will end up buying it,” Connected DMV’s CIO George Thomas told earlier this year. “The innovators who are in the companies that are building products towards this and, of course, workflows, education, academia and research that will fuel all of the above.”
