About this event

‘Creating the first scalable quantum computer blueprint & commercialising innovation’

We are very excited to announce that our April Fireside Chat is with none other than Universal Quantum Founder and CEO, Sebastian Weidt.

Sebastian is the co-creator of the first scalable quantum computer blueprint which invented a pioneering approach to building the life-changing million qubit machine. Combining his expertise in physics and commercial experience, Sebastian has been able to make exciting developments at Universal Quantum, raising over £11M in funding to date.

Why is Quantum Computing such an exciting innovation?

Quantum computing will offer the developing world of artificial intelligence more computing power, which in turn will lead to more robust AI systems that can better understand us, “think for themselves,” offer more efficient machine learning and better solve small and large problems.

In this fireside chat, we will discuss:

  • Sebastian’s journey from business consultancy to gaining his PhD and working on cutting edge technology
  • His views on the future of Quantum Computing and commercialisation opportunities
  • Taking a hugely complex idea and turning it into a commercial product
  • Raising funding for deep technology and research
  • And much much more!
