Open-sourcing the Quantum Revolution with William Zeng

Monday May 6 at 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


Join OSV fellow, William Zeng, in conversation with quantum researcher Asier Piñeiro Orioli as William discusses his efforts to fund and develop open-source quantum software and hardware!

Quantum Computing holds the promise to revolutionize the world­ someday.  However, the challenge of controlling matter at the quantum scale is formidable and requires a collective effort.  What if anyone had open access to top-tier quantum software and hardware tools, similar to how anyone with Internet access can build an app?

Join a fascinating salon with William Zeng, who has been at the forefront of quantum computing research for over a decade—in academia, industry and, now, the non-profit sector.  As recipient of the OSV Fellowship, he has embarked on a journey to develop open-source quantum computing tools to benefit the most people.

In this salon, William will dive into:

  • His experience and journey into the Fellowship.
  • The role of open-source in Quantum Computing and how to push open-source developments.
  • The state of the quantum ecosystem: the challenges ahead, known and less known opportunities, and the interactions between academia, industry, non-profit and other stakeholders.

Part of the Building the Future with OSV Fellows series.
