Quantum computing takes a giant leap forward from today’s technology—one that will forever alter our economic, industrial, academic, and societal landscape. In just hours or days, a quantum computer can solve complex problems that would otherwise take billions of years for classical computing to solve. This has massive implications for research in healthcare, energy, environmental systems, smart materials, and more. The quantum economy is coming. And Microsoft envisions a future where customers use Azure for both classical and quantum computing.
Is a new meetup that has been formed by the merger of two existing meetups to create a focus for the Quantum ecosystem and those curious about quantum computing in London and the surrounding area. Microsoft is supporting this group with funding and access to venues to help get it established, noting though that it is independently organised and not a “Microsoft community”. We are a genuine stakeholder in building an open, vibrant community for those interested in quantum computation.
