The Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, in partnership with the Chicago Quantum Exchange, presents its annual Entrepreneurial Outlook series to discuss important emerging trends in select industries. In Quantum 2020, a panel of expert venture capitalists and entrepreneurs in the field of quantum computing and technology will discuss the state of the industry in 2020 and where they see opportunities for entrepreneurship and innovation within the field. Join a panel of expert venture capitalists and entrepreneurs in the field…

In November, the Chicago Quantum Exchange held a workshop about ethics and societal impacts of artificial intelligence and quantum computing technologies. Participants from a wide variety of academic backgrounds, from physicists to sociologists, discussed the implications of technology on society and vice versa and identified critical steps scientists need to take so technology is developed and implemented ethically and responsibly.

In 1999, Nature published the first demonstration of a superconducting quantum bit, or qubit, a feat that relied on trillions of atoms operating in nearly perfect synchrony so that their collective, macroscopic, quantum state was either in 0, 1, or any desired complex superposition of the two. Chad Rigetti, CEO and founder of Rigetti Computing, will give insight into their efforts as a full-stack quantum computing start-up that has provided 24/7 cloud access to quantum processors since 2017. 

Don’t miss our colloquium speaker this Monday, Chad Rigetti, CEO and founder of Rigetti Computing. He will give insight into the quantum computing start-up’s efforts in quantum processors. He will describe system design considerations and challenges as industry scales up quantum technologies to hundreds of superconducting qubits that are continuously operated at temperatures colder than space, entangled and read out by a complex symphony of radio-frequency control electronics, as well as custom R&D solutions developed to satisfy demands imposed by…

The Chicago Quantum Exchange is looking for a logo. We invite designers and design-inspired scientists from any of the CQE institutions to submit their logo ideas for use on our website, pamphlets and other material. Please submit your logo design here. If your design is chosen, you will receive a prize of $500. CQE members are encouraged to participate and to share this opportunity with all creative colleagues and students. Our contest is open to anyone affiliated with the CQE institutions – UChicago, Argonne, Fermilab, UIUC…
