(IQT-TheHague) Stefano Pirandola, CEO and founder, nodeQ has agreed to speak on “Why Quantum Communication?” and “Quantum Clouds” at IQT The Hague.
Stefano Pirandola is a world-leading expert in quantum technology, with more than 160 publications and thousands of citations. Before becoming Professor of quantum computing at the University of York (UK), he was awarded with prestigious academic fellowships and worked as a researcher at MIT.
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 and quantum networks. 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 [Nature 532, 169 (2016)] and contributed to develop more advanced protocols for quantum teleportation and entanglement distribution.
At nodeQ, he leads a highly-expert team specialized in the design and optimization of quantum networks for near-term quantum-safe communications and distributed quantum computing.
Inside Quantum Technology The Hague Conference and Exhibition will be held as a hybrid event February 21-23, 2022. This is the foremost gathering of business leaders, product developers, marketing strategists and investors anywhere in the world focused on quantum internet. Over 1,000 people will be attending this event (both in-person and online) from all over the world and from every area of quantum computing.
This conference includes panels and keynotes on topics related to the future of the Quantum Internet.
