Stefano Pirandola, CEO and founder, nodeQ, will speak on “Why quantum communication?” at IQT The Hague March 13-15.
Prof Stefano Pirandola is a world-leading expert in quantum networking and security, with more than 180 publications and thousands of citations. Before becoming Professor at the University of York (UK), he won prestigious academic fellowships and worked as a researcher at MIT in 2007-10, where he developed fundamental blocks for quantum communication networks.
He has been one of the main scientists behind the development of continuous-variable quantum information, a more advanced setting that enables to create quantum protocols with much higher rates.
Among other contributions, he discovered the ultimate capacities for quantum communication over quantum channels, he introduced the first end-to-end protocol for quantum key distribution, and developed rigorous security proofs for fiber-based, free-space, and satellite quantum communications. He pioneered the hybrid model of quantum internet and contributed to develop more advanced protocols for quantum teleportation and entanglement distribution.
At nodeQ, he leads a world-leading team specialized in the design, optimization and deployment of high-speed quantum networks for near-term quantum-safe communications.
IQT The Hague 2023 is the eighth global conference and exhibition in the highly successful Inside Quantum Technology series.
The Hague event will focus on Quantum Communications and Quantum Security. Ten vertical topics encompassing more than 40 panels and talks from over 80 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding on state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum internet as well as the current impact of quantum-safe technologies on cybersecurity.
