A Quantum Connection
Description: Everything that happens is connected to everything else. There are then, moments in time, that act as triggers toward a series of interconnected events that result in significant human progress. This occurs through periods of transformative societal change — from the initial tools that humans developed through the Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages — and through the evolution of ideas during the Classical Era, Middle Ages, Renaissance, Reformation, Enlightenment, Industrial Revolution, and beyond — until we arrive to where we are today.
There is a certain forcefulness around the march of technology as it fuses with prevailing ideas that stem from each iterative step forward. As the modern era developed, the conceptual idea behind a computer became the first machines to use mechanical relays and vacuum tubes, transistors and integrated circuits — advancement fueled by Moore's Law, microprocessors and quantum computers. Interconnected advancements continue to power significant progress. What will the future bring, as new forms of technology impact our society?
Join Theo and Bradley in conversation with our partner Arunkumar Krishnakumar, as he talks about his new book Quantum Computing and Blockchain in Business: Exploring the applications, challenges and collision of quantum computing and blockchain and explores the progress possible through these interconnected technologies.
