Quantum Computing (QC) – the crucible of computer science, physics and mathematics – has the potential to open up new horizons. Massively complex tasks that defeat today’s supercomputers, could, theoretically, be resolved in seconds. But are these just empty promises? To find the answer, we invited the eminent futurist – Dr Michael Jackson – to speak at our August ‘Innovation Talk’. Mike was the co-founder of ‘Shaping Tomorrow’ which has pioneered the use of AI to analyse trends and make forecasts.
