Dr. Joseph Emerson holds a PhD in theoretical physics and is widely recognized as a thought leader in quantum computing. He pioneered several industry-standard methods for quantum computing, such as Randomized Benchmarking, Cycle Benchmarking and Randomized Compiling. He founded and led the quantum computing startup Quantum Benchmark Inc which was recently acquired by Keysight Technologies. He is now acting as Head of Quantum Strategy at Keysight Technologies and Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing. He has published more than 60 academic papers and has personally supervised many of the key players in the quantum computing industry. His research continues to be focused on practical and efficient methods for error diagnostics and compiler-level error suppression and their application to optimize performance throughout all levels of the quantum computing stack.
IQT Canada 2023 is the tenth global conference and exhibition in the highly successful Inside Quantum Technology series.
This event is Canada’s Quantum Computing Event, focusing on Ecosystems for Quantum Readiness. A number of vertical topics encompassing more than 30 panels and talks from over 80 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding on state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum ecosystems as well as the current impact of quantum computing technologies.
The conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers and investors who are working on the current future developments of the quantum ecosystem. IQT Canada is organized by 3DR Holdings, IQT Research, INTRIQ, and the Governments of both Canada and Quebec. The June conference will be an “in-person” event to ensure maximum networking and discussion and will take place at Centre Mont-Royal in Montréal (Québec), Canada.
