Quantum Board Factor

Mon Nov 12 2018 (25:38)

The implications of Quantum Computing can make or break you in the boardroom and beyond!

Host: Nancy May, CEO, BoardBench Companies

Guest: Dr. Mark Jackson, Scientific Lead, Cambridge Quantum Computing

Most boards try to cover their butts by bringing a tech guru onto their board. But did you know that having an up-to-date understanding of technology and computing not be enough?  Blockchains can be broken and may themselves become a thing of the past in just a few short years. 

The new sheriffs in Tech Town are physicists! That’s right physicists!  Worse, it’s almost certain that they are not part of the strategic team. Listen up as Dr. Mark Jackson brings forward what this all means to the future of corporations.

Dr. Mark Jackson received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Columbia University. He then spent 10 years researching super string theory and cosmology, co-authoring almost 40 technical articles. To promote the public understanding of science, he founded the science crowdfunding platform Fiat Physica and non-profit Science Partnership Fund. He is Adjunct Faculty at Singularity University and a Director of the BoldlyGo Institute.
