Leonardo Duenas-Osario, Associate Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Rice University; Marco Fiorentino, Distinguished Technologist, HPE Labs; Ben Porter, Director of Business Development, Quantum Computing, Microsoft Azure; Ian Weightman, Senior Vice President, Technology, IHS Markit. Quantum supremacy – the anticipated advantage of quantum over traditional computers – is still yet to be achieved, but quantum is widely expected to be the next leap forward in computing. What is the current and future state of this technology? How will the energy industry harness the power of quantum computing to address practical challenges of costs, safety, performance, efficiency and lower emissions? What are the risks – including cyber – from this new and potentially disruptive technology?
