The presentation would consist of 4 parts:

- Part I: Quantum Computer Concepts

The objective of Part I is to review the key vocabulary about Quantum Computing (Qubit, gates, parallelism, entanglement, teleportation..) so that non specialists can put some concept or intuition behind the words they see in the newspapers, on internet…

- Part II: Quantum Computer Market

Part II is to give an overview of the Quantum Computer ecosystem worldwide so that participants can realize the impact of the technology in the combining years and have some idea about the main players.

- Part III: Financial Institutions activities in Quantum Computing

Part III will be based on high level non confidential information about what financial institutions that QuantFi visited in NY, London, EU and Japan are doing and want to achieve in the coming years.

- Part IV: When will my Company benefit from Quantum Computing?

This is the most difficult topic since there is probably around 100 players working on Quantum Computing hardware, with breakthroughs happening regularly and the possibility to become suddenly viable commercially.
