Professor Michelle Simmons' ground-breaking work in Quantum Computing



APP Disruptive Technology Lunch Series has proudly hosted Professor Michelle Simmons from the Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology.

The Centre has recently received $46m in funding to build the prototype for its super-fast quantum computer. This revolutionary machine will use counter-intuitive properties of ‘quantum mechanics’ to operate a computer millions of times faster than any other computer presently available.

 "We are engaging with people who want to use our technology over the longer term, and for a university research organisation the end users are absolutely pivotal to the quality of what we are producing" Ms Simmons told our guests on Thursday.
