In this episode of “ACM-W Celebrating Technology Leaders,” we invite women technologists from diverse career paths and stages, contributing to the field of Quantum Computing. With our experts, we aim to demystify terms like “superposition,” “entanglement,” “interference,” “tunneling,” and “decoherence” in a beginner-friendly way.

Our panelists will share their insightful perspectives on:

1. What kind of problems are Quantum Computers particularly good at solving?

2. Are there any practical applications of Quantum Computing that exist today?

3. What are some hurdles towards a fast progression and adoption of Quantum Computing?

4. What are some of the main Quantum threats and challenges? Are there any ethical considerations?

5. How can we build and nourish the Quantum Computing talent?
