What will the journey look like and what are the factors for success?
Join this session for a view of how business leaders can explore and quickly deploy these new business models to become cognitive enterprises, gaining a significant competitive advantage both within their industries, and by entering entirely new markets.
From Sci-fi to Reality: Quantum Computing is Here
There is a whole class of problems that are too difficult for even the largest and most powerful computers that exist today to solve. These exponential challenges include everything from simulating the complex interactions of atoms and molecules to optimizing supply chains. But quantum computers could enable us to solve these problems, unleashing untold opportunities for business. IBM Director of Research Arvind Krishna will describe how quantum computers have become a reality at IBM.
He’ll discuss what companies are doing to become “quantum ready” for a new era of computing. He’ll also present the roadmap for IBM Q, the first commercial quantum program that is expected to deliver powerful results for businesses within a few years.
Dr. D.J. Patil — Data Revolution
Dr. D.J. Patil, one of the most influential data scientists in the world, was tasked with making the largest organization in history — the U.S. Federal Government — a data driven enterprise. Patil shares his revolutionary vision, drawing from his involvement with transformative programs like the Precision Medicine Initiative, Cancer Moonshot, and Data-Driven Justice Initiative.
