Quantum is projected to become a $1 trillion sector in the next few decades, delivering novel computing, communications, and sensing applications with immense national security and commercial impact. Maryland is already a global leader in quantum science and engineering, and is well-positioned to reap the economic benefit as these transformational technologies are starting to transition to use. Dr. John Sawyer, Executive Director of the Mid-Atlantic Quantum Alliance, will provide an overview of what “quantum” really means, how the regional quantum ecosystem is growing, and the opportunities for Southern Maryland to be a key partner in helping to develop and scale quantum technologies, use-cases, workforce, and infrastructure. No prior knowledge of quantum or STEM fields is required. This will be a hybrid event at the USMSM SMART Building; space is limited so registration is required.
NOTE: When registering, attendees will indicate if they plan to participate in person or online. In-person participation is limited to 25 attendees.
ABOUT THE MID-ATLANTIC QUANTUM ALLIANCE
The Mid-Atlantic Quantum Alliance was formally launched in January 2020 to accelerate moving quantum science and engineering to use and further enhance the region’s primacy in a field that promises to revolutionize society.
