Inside Quantum Technology

Jonny Olson, Co-Founder, Associate Director of Quantum Science IP, & Gregg Carman, Chief Revenue Officer of Zapata Computing will deliver the Session Keynote for “The Future Quantum-Safe Enterprise” at IQT Quantum Cybersecurity in NYC October 25-27

Jonny Olson, Co-Founder, Associate Director of Quantum Science IP, Zapata Computing & Gregg Carman – Chief Revenue Officer, Zapata Computing will deliver the Session Keynote for “The Future Quantum-Safe Enterprise” at IQT Quantum Cybersecurity in NYC October 25-27.

Session 3: The Future Quantum-Safe Enterprise The jury is out on how the quantum data center will be made secure. This session will look at how the various types of quantum cybersecurity will be melded together to create the future quantum-safe enterprise environment.

Jonny Olson had nearly a decade of experience in finding use cases for near-term quantum devices before working in IP. He received a PhD in Physics from Louisiana State University in 2016, having developed improved methods for quantum metrology that use readily available optical photonics systems and contributing to the theory of Boson Sampling, the first-ever proposal for quantum supremacy. Subsequently, Jonny worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University in the Aspuru-Guzik group where he developed two NISQ quantum algorithms – the quantum autoencoder and quantum variational error corrector. Since moving full-time to Zapata in early 2018, he has developed other variational algorithms including compressed unsupervised state preparation (CUSP) algorithm for improving quantum circuit compilation, the variational quantum factoring (VQF) algorithm for factoring on a NISQ quantum computer, a proposal for a quantum optical neural network (QONN) architecture, and variational quantum unsampling (VQU). He has recently become registered to practice before the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Gregg Carman has a distinguished track record spanning various technology sectors including analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), workplace technology, Internet of Things (IoT), and CRM. Most recently he served as the CRO of Nuvolo, a workplace software company, where he led the go-to-market strategy to significantly grow annual recurring revenue (ARR) while expanding adoption in new global and vertical markets. Carman also served as a senior executive at several noteworthy tech companies, including:, Humanyze, Mattersight, SAP, and Siebel Systems. He’s been the key character of a Harvard Business School case study “Anatomy of a Sale,” 2001, Profs Deighton & Naryandas. He lives in the Boston area with his three daughters and stays active with basketball, tennis, and hiking.

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
