Speaker: Rafael Fister
Rafael Fister has a background in physics and works at the Institute for Data and Analytics at BearingPoint. In his talk, he will explain the basics of quantum computing, a topic that has attracted attention in recent years and is making great strides in the development of related hardware and concrete applications. The focus of his talk will be on the current state of quantum computing, the possible areas of application in business and industry, and the development potential of this promising technology. What research is still needed and which applications are already worthwhile? As an interdisciplinary field of technology, software engineers will be especially needed in the future for the development of (hybrid) quantum algorithms. Therefore, this talk will concisely provide the necessary physical basics to take away the participants' fear of quantum physics and to show how especially software engineers can work in this exciting field.
