We are all aware of the dramatic impact computing — and the exponential growth in computing power — has had on economies, societies and humanity itself. Now, imagine a quantum leap in computing power beyond anything we have previously witnessed or imagined, with the potential to benefit society in profound ways. What would be possible?

We are therefore excited to be teaming up with Google’s Quantum AI Lab for our next BlueYard Conversation “A Quantum Leap” on June 22nd in Munich. We will be covering topics from the path to true quantum computing, initial key applications and use cases and how to create an ecosystem around a new computing paradigm on the horizon. The Economist’s Jason Palmer will be moderating the day. Additionally, some of the authors of “Commercialize quantum technologies in five years“ that appeared in Nature a few weeks ago will be guiding our conversations. The researchers behind the “loophole-free Bell test” the New York Times covered (“Sorry, Einstein. Quantum Study Suggests ‘Spooky Action’ Is Real.”) will also be there to tell you about it.

As always, this BlueYard Conversation will be invite-only and limited to 75 people to ensure we can have high quality interactions. Early confirmed attendees include the founders, CEOs and key executives from quantum startups such as Rigetti, D-Wave, IonQ, 1QBit, Cambridge Quantum Computing, QxBranch, QCWare, ID Quantique, Turing Quantum Inc.; large technology and industrial companies readying to harness the potential of quantum computing such as Accenture, Airbus, Bosch, BMW, Daimler, Dolby, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Samsung, Siemens, Tencent, VW, & Zeiss; investors such as Atomico, Goldman Sachs, Khosla Ventures & Lightspeed; as well as some of the world’s leading research institutes in the field such as Berkeley, Cambridge, Delft/QuTech, MIT, Max Planck, Oxford/NQIT, University of Sydney, & UTS.This event will connect entrepreneurs directly with enterprises, researchers, government funding agencies and investors.

We’ll be kicking off with an informal lunch, followed by an afternoon of panels, workshops and lightning talks — with plenty of casual meeting time and spaces. We’ll round off the day with some drinks and food in the evening. We’ll be releasing more details to the attendants in the weeks running up to the event.

Here’s the deal: we’ve kept 20 tickets back for students and startups that could benefit from being a part of this conversation. If you are working on next-generation computing or its application layer, send us a short email to team@blueyard.com describing who you are and what you are up to — and you’ll be in for a chance to be a part of the gathering.
