There has been tremendous progress in recent years in quantum tech, which has the potential to impact many industries. Leichenauer will review the progress in quantum tech and highlight promising real-world applications in areas such as medical imaging and diagnostics, communications, cybersecurity, and positioning and navigation to name a few (hint: not everything is about quantum computing!).
The potential of quantum tech and its ecosystems can only be realized if there is a push for inclusive workforce education to train a new generation of talent to build and take advantage of these quantum technological tools and resources. In addition, there is a need for partnerships between universities, industry (large and small), and the government to advance quantum technology to the next level.
