Jacques Mc Neill, Coordinator of the Quantum Communication Initiative at Numana, brings a wealth of experience in fostering technological innovation to his role, which he will speak on at the IQT Vancouver/Pacific Rim conference in June 2024.

At Numana, a think-tank focused on emerging technologies, Mc Neill leads efforts in developing and implementing Kirq, the Québec Quantum communication network. This initiative is at the forefront of developing commercial applications that leverage the power of quantum communication. Mc Neill’s expertise extends to advising innovative SMEs and managing multi-partner R&D projects, such as ENCQOR, focused on 5G technology deployment, and LabVI, Canada’s first open-air laboratory for intelligent life.

His background as a high-tech entrepreneur and experience during the critical valley-of-death phase in innovations make him a key figure in transitioning quantum technologies from theoretical frameworks to practical applications. Mc Neill’s academic credentials include a BSc in Science and an MBA in Marketing and International Business from McGill University, underscoring his robust foundation in both scientific and commercial domains. His leadership extends beyond business development to impactful board roles at research organizations like RESMIQ and Prompt, where he served as chairman for two mandates.

At the upcoming IQT Vancouver conference, Jacques Mc Neill will share insights into the challenges and opportunities in deploying quantum communication networks, emphasizing the strategic importance of these technologies in advancing Canada’s position in the global quantum race. His session will explore the intricate relationships between academia, industry, and government necessary to drive the quantum communication agenda forward.

IQT Vancouver · Pacific Rim 2024: Quantum Computing, Communications, and Security—Pathways to Real-World Solutions.

With Vancouver as North America’s gateway to the Pacific Rim, IQT and the Quantum Algorithms Institute are bringing together partners across North America and Asia to showcase the state of quantum computing, communications, and security. This international conference moves beyond the quantum hype to profile quantum computing, communications technologies, and quantum expertise in real-world settings. Sessions will highlight practical applications of quantum algorithms and networking in pharmaceuticals, transportation, finance, and more industries. Attendees will include industry and government executives, end-users, and investors who will learn about the latest developments in these technologies, pathways for companies to get ready for quantum solutions, and ethics and policy considerations in this fast-growing industry.
