IQT-NYC Honored to Announce Dr. Whitfield Diffie, Co-Inventor of Public Key Encryption & Turing Award Winner, to Speak April 2
(IQT-NYC) The IQT-NYC event is honored to announce that Dr. Whitfield Diffie, a celebrated luminary who co-invented encryption will be presenting at the upcoming event on April 2, 2020.
Dr. Whitfied Diffie will speak on “Crypto Crossroads: Betting on Non-Math Based Encryption as Quantum Computers Loom” at 10:30, April 2. Dr. Diffie is the co-inventor of public key cryptography, pioneering dual-key cryptography in the early 1970s. Before writing the 1976 paper, “New Directions in Cryptography,” with Martin Hellman, encryption technology was the sole domain of government entities. The Diffie-Hellman key exchange protocol democratized the use of cryptography and revolutionized the landscape of security in the private sector.
In 2015, Dr. Diffie became a winner of the Turing Award, widely considered the most prestigious award in computer science, for fundamental contributions to modern cryptography.
Dr. Diffie has an honorary doctorate from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology an honorary Degree of Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa) by Royal Holloway, University of London. In 2011, Dr. Diffie was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame.
IQT NYC is a follow-on to our highly successful 2019 events in Boston and Europe in 2019. Inside Quantum Technology – New York will be jointly organized with 3DR Holdings and QuTech (Delft University), which organized our other highly successful quantum technology events. Our event New York in April 2020 will offer:
*60 speakers from firms critical to the commercial evolution of quantum technology*Exhibit space in which leading hardware and software firms, along with service providers will show off their latest products and strategies
*A Symposium devoted to emerging quantum technology components, chips and materials; all areas that Inside Quantum Technology has identified as profitable opportunities for start ups
*Another Symposium on end user experiences. We believe that quantum technology has reached a stage of maturity that sharing end user experiences are extremely valuable to product designers, strategic planners and investors. The panelists in this session will include pioneer users of quantum technology from financial services, aerospace, pharma and specialty chemical, healthcare, automotive and transportation, defense, government and R&D
*Plenty of time to network, do deals, meet new customers and see new products. In addition to its educational function, Inside Quantum Technology – New York will help you make new colleagues and discuss new opportunities in the quantum technology space.
We are making special provisions to enable attendees to network with speakers and other attendees to exchange experiences and conduct business.
*Market forecasts and analysis. Attendees will hear about the future potential of quantum technology through several sessions presented by Inside Quantum Technology analysts, including up-to-date forecasts of penetration and revenue generation
*Insight on government policy initiatives, funding programs and networking efforts designed to promote quantum technology in North America, Europe and Asia.
