Seminar of the Master in

Quantum Computing Technology

Live this exciting technological revolution… and get some hands-on experience with industry experts

Quantum Computing in the Industry and Society of the Future

Quantum Computing is an emerging discipline and a potentially disruptive technology to which companies are beginning to give importance as a key technological agent for the future. It is a technology that, because it is centered on computing, necessarily affects all scientific-technical disciplines and, directly or indirectly, all the products and services that companies currently offer to society.

Quantum Computing changes in its essence the engine of the Information Society in which we live, by proposing a computing model that radically breaks with previous technology. This new technology has the capacity to address computational problems that current computers are not expected to be able to deal with, such as the design of new materials or the analysis and synthesis of drugs.

On the other hand, Quantum Computing has changed the approaches to Information Security, by breaking the current protocols of public key cryptography. This fact, with enormous repercussions in today's society, is undoubtedly one of the main reasons why companies are interested in Quantum Computing. In this context, the demand for experts in Quantum Technologies and Quantum Computing is expected to increase considerably in the coming years.

In this Seminar we want to complete the training of the students of our Master in Quantum Computing Technology by analyzing the implementation of these Technologies in the current Industry and Society. In this sense, we greatly appreciate the contribution of all the speakers and we want to highlight the participation of four students from the first edition of the Master, who will present the results of their Master Thesis.
