The Eternal Golden Braid

Future of quantum

Dato & tidspunkt




Quantum Computing will change the world as we know today. The way we crunch numbers, how we secure our data, and everything in-between. However, quantum computers are not here yet so what is all the fuzz about?  

In this FUTURE OF we will get an in-depth understanding on the application perspectives for quantum computers and quantum technologies now and in the future. And why this is an area companies need to take very seriously.

Bio on speaker

Charles M. Marcus, Professor at UCPH and Principal Researcher at Microsoft, Director of the Microsoft Quantum Lab, Copenhagen

Received H.C. Ørsted Gold Medal in Physics, The Society for the Dissemination of Natural Science, 2020

Charles Marcus was raised in Sonoma, California, USA, and was an undergraduate at Stanford University (1980-84). He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Harvard in 1990 and was an IBM postdoctoral fellow at Harvard from 1990-92. He then served on the Physics faculty at Stanford (1992-2000) and Harvard (2000-2011) where he also was Director of the Harvard Center for Nanoscale Systems (2006-2011). Marcus joined the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI), University of Copenhagen in Denmark in 2012 as Villum Kann Rasmussen Professor, sponsored by the Villum Foundation, serving as Director of the Center for Quantum Devices, a Center of Excellence of the Danish National Research Foundation. In 2016, he joined Microsoft as Scientific Director of Microsoft Quantum Lab–Copenhagen, a research/technology hub of the Microsoft Quantum Program aimed at developing the components of a topological quantum computer.

Marcus’s research interests focus on quantum mechanically coherent electronics, quantum bits, quantum chaos, and topology in condensed matter systems. The long-term research goal is to build and explore large-scale interconnected quantum coherent and topological systems with with an eye toward applications in quantum information.

FUTURE OF events

FUTURE OF is a new event series that focus on future trends within the sphere of digital agencies. The events can be either virtual or physical depending on the speaker. The events is free of charge, only for members of ITB and primarily for digital agencies. If you are interested in co-hosting the next FUTURE OF session, please reach out to Anne Sofie Josephsen – asjo@itb.dk
