The Study

Rüdiger Pfeiffer, 2b AHEAD Research Fellow, conducted in-depth research and about 20 expert interviews in the last three months for the study “Future of Quantum Computing”. He travelled to Silicon Valley, Berkeley, Los Angeles and Boston to conduct some of these interviews with researchers and founders in person. We are currently in the process of evaluating these interviews and condensing them into an outlook of the future of quantum computing.

Be there when we present the preliminary results of the study and answer with us the question:


How will quantum computing become relevant for my business model?
