Sabrina Maniscalco, CEO and Co-Founder of Algorithmiq Ltd. is a 2024 IQT Nordics Speaker
The IQT Nordics conference in late June 2024 features Professor Sabrina Maniscalco, a distinguished figure in Quantum Information, Computing, and Logic at the University of Helsinki. As the CEO and co-founder of Algorithmiq Ltd, a startup specializing in quantum algorithms for Life Sciences, Professor Maniscalco brings a unique blend of academic expertise and entrepreneurial insight to the event.
With over two decades of experience in Quantum Technology, Professor Maniscalco has made significant contributions to the field, particularly in understanding noise in quantum devices, complex quantum systems, and quantum simulations. Her work has been crucial in advancing the understanding of how quantum technologies can be optimized and made more efficient, a critical aspect as these technologies move closer to widespread practical application.
Her role as CEO and co-founder of Algorithmiq Ltd highlights her commitment to applying quantum technology to real-world problems, specifically in the realm of Life Sciences. The startup focuses on developing quantum algorithms that could revolutionize areas such as drug discovery, personalized medicine, and complex biological system modeling.
Professor Maniscalco’s leadership extends beyond her company; she has coordinated several international and interdisciplinary projects in quantum technologies. Her role in these projects, coupled with her extensive research background, has established her as one of the leading experts in the field.
At the IQT Nordics conference, Professor Maniscalco is expected to share insights from her vast experience in quantum technologies with her work at Algorithmiq as an example. Her presentation will likely cover the latest developments in quantum algorithms for Life Sciences, the challenges and opportunities in mitigating noise in quantum devices, and the prospects of complex quantum systems and quantum simulations.
Given her expertise in both the theoretical and practical aspects of quantum technology, her talk is anticipated to provide a comprehensive overview of its current state and potential future directions, especially in its applications to life sciences.
