    Innovation: the Race to the Future

    AustCham and Commonwealth Bank are pleased to bring to Hong Kong one of the world’s leading scientists, Australian of the Year and quantum physicist, Professor Michelle Simmons. Prof Simmons is widely hailed for her world-leading research in the “space race of the computing era” which is set to transform information processing. She has been billed as one of the world’s top scientists and today leads a research team focused on building a quantum computer powerful enough to solve complex problems in minutes which, using today’s technology, would take thousands of years. 

    This is a rare opportunity in Hong Kong to hear from a renowned pioneer shaping tomorrow’s future.  Professor Simmons will speak of her vision and the power of quantum computing. With the pace of change already electrifying, what will the world look like when the race is won? How will quantum computing change our lives? Don’t miss your chance to hear from a distinguished expert who will demystify the science of quantum computing and explain its impact on the future.
