The date “14 April” contains the rounded first three digits of the Planck constant, a fundamental constant in quantum physics. Therefore, the "World Quantum Day" is celebrated on this date, a day on which researchers would like to give an understanding of quantum science and technology to the general public.
On World Quantum Day at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts there will be two presentations in English:
08:20 to 09:00
- Quantum Computers cannot hack everything - Let's talk about security and quantum cryptography
Here we answer the most frequently asked questions about quantum computers, IT security and quantum cryptography.
09:00 to 09:40
- Quantum Computers in Finance - An overview and an application in Portfolio Management
Here we provide an overview of the current applications of quantum computers in finance. In addition, we will disclose insights into a current project in the field of portfolio optimisation in investment management.
Afterwards, you are cordially invited to a networking breakfast.
