Abstract:

Knowledge and innovation will define the future of human society. This talk will focus on two powerful technologies: AI and quantum computing. The presentation will include basic concepts of the technologies, as well as the profound impact of these technologies and the pivotal role they play in our future.

The talk will cover the following topics:

  • The evolution of Artificial Intelligence: demonstrate the expectation of intelligent machines.
  • Significance of Machine Learning: why and how machine learning is important in modern society.
  • Impact of Artificial Intelligence in the near future: how Artificial Intelligence tools will impact human lives, and how humans should respond to that.
  • The Quantum Jump to Quantum Computing: Why Quantum Computing can significantly improve the Computing landscape.
  • Application of quantum computing in the near future: different areas in which quantum computing has significant contributions.
  • The synergy of quantum computing and artificial intelligence: how the interaction of these two technologies can create a greater effect.
  • Future opportunities: how can we take advantage of these two technologies?
