For the Dutch Payments Association I was the technical organiser of the Quantum Computing for the financial industry Symposium on March 25 2021. I also took care of the interaction with the audience.
As an introduction this brilliant video from IBM explains the basics of quantum computing in 5 minutes and on 5 different levels.
The online event gave a brief update on developments related to quantum computing, explored opportunities, prepared for the advent of the quantum computer and aimed to strengthen the dialogue between the academic and industry community.
