How Quantum Computing is Affecting Finance Today

Quantum computers are poised to revolutionize all areas of science and technology. In this talk Dr. Mark Jackson will give a basic overview of the field, and how it will affect the financial industry.

The webinar will begin by introducing quantum computing and the state of the field. Mark will then further focus on two primary applications in finance: machine learning and encryption/cybersecurity. Quantum machine learning may produce exponentially faster trading and optimization algorithms, and is already being implemented by a number of major financial institutions. Similarly, quantum encryption is being deployed to defend against threats current and future.
