Mark Webber, Quantum Architect, Universal Quantum will speak on “Fixing Cryptocurrencies’ Quantum Computing Problem” at IQT Quantum Cybersecurity in NYC October 25-27.
While completing his PhD at the University of Sussex with the Ion Quantum Technology Group, Mark focused on theory problems to enable their hardware platform and published on the computational power of both near term and fault tolerant devices. In particular, he published on the impact of hardware specifications on reaching relevant run times for quantum advantage applications, including breaking elliptic curve encryption. He now works as a Quantum Architect at Universal Quantum playing an intermediary role between the quantum hardware and quantum algorithm specialists.
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 email@example.com)
