Edward Parker, Physical Scientist, RAND Corporation, to present at ‘Preparing for Post-Quantum Critical Infrastructure’ & ‘Comparing the U.S. and Chinese Progress in Quantum Computing and Communications’ at IQT Quantum Cybersecurity NYC
Edward Parker, Physical Scientist, RAND Corporation, has agreed to present at IQT Quantum Cybersecurity NYC October 25-27. His topics will be:
–Preparing for Post-Quantum Critical Infrastructure
–Comparing the U.S. and Chinese Progress in Quantum Computing and Communications
Edward Parker is a Physical Scientist at the RAND Corporation, a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy research organization. He received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2017, where his research involved numerical modeling of quantum magnetic materials that might eventually be useful for building topological quantum computers. Since coming to RAND, his research has focused on the national security and economic policy implications of emerging technologies – primarily quantum technology, but also artificial intelligence and 5G. He was the lead author of a recent comprehensive assessment of the U.S. and Chinese industrial bases in quantum technology, which was sponsored by the U.S. government and is publicly available on the RAND web site.
IQT Quantum Cybersecurity New York October 25-27 is the first international conference and exhibition focused on QUANTUM CYBERSECURITY. Nine vertical topics encompassing more than 40 panels and talks, curated by IQT Research’s Lawrence Gasman, will provide attendees with a deep understanding on the current impact of quantum technology on cybersecurity and how it will evolve. Cybersecurity is of growing importance to business, government, and the intelligence/military in a world of hacking and geopolitical instability. IQT Fall 2022 will be primarily “in person” (limited virtual participation available) to ensure maximum networking and discussion missing from larger hybrid events.
(Exclusive sponsorships available for each of the 9 vertical topics as well as the overall sponsorship for the entire event: apply to firstname.lastname@example.org)
Sandra K. Helsel, Ph.D. has been researching and reporting on frontier technologies since 1990. She has her Ph.D. from the University of Arizona.
