OIST Quantum/Cyber Security Initiative: The Science, the Opportunities, and the Real-World ChallengeVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Co-Hosted by Asia Society Japan Center & OIST
Asia Society Japan Center and Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) are jointly holding a breakfast seminar on quantum technology and its future impact on information security entitled “OIST Quantum/Cyber Security Initiative: The Science, the Opportunities, and the Real-World Challenge” . It will be a morning program with 3 presentations and QA session. For those attending onsite, breakfast will be served with networking opportunities.
Three of the world’s most renowned quantum scientists will lead you through the world of quantum cryptography and computation and discuss its impact on existing encryption and cyber security.
- Dr. Artur Ekert: University of Oxford, Centre for Quantum Technologies, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University
"Introduction to Quantum Technology and its Impact on Information Security"
- Dr. Christopher Monroe: Duke University, University of Maryland
"Experimental Progress in Building Quantum Computers - Will they be here any time soon to threaten classical methods of encryption?"
- Dr. Michele Mosca : Institute of Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo
"Can We Afford to Wait or Should We be Actively Looking for Solutions to Protect the Integrity of the Existing Cryptosystems?"
Don't miss this unique opportunity to learn about 101 of quantum technology.
All presentations will be given in English.

Dr. Artur Ekert
Professor, University of Oxford, Centre for Quantum Technologies | Adjunct Professor, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University
Artur Ekert is one of the best known pioneers of quantum cryptography. He works as Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, as a Professorial Fellow in Quantum Physics and Cryptography at Merton College, Oxford, and as the Lee Kong Chian Centennial Professor and the founding director of the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) at the National University of Singapore. His research interests extend over most aspects of information processing in quantum-mechanical systems, with a focus on quantum communication and quantum computation. He has worked with and advised many companies and government agencies over the last decades. He is a recipient of several awards, including the 1995 Maxwell Medal by the Institute of Physics, the 2007 Royal Society Hughes Medal and the 2019 Micius Quantum Prize. In 2016 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society.
Dr. Christopher Monroe
Professor, Duke University | University of Maryland
Christopher Monroe is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Physics at Duke University, the director of the Duke Quantum Center, the Bice Seci-Zorn Professor and a Distinguished Professor of Physics at the University of Maryland, and a Fellow at the Joint Quantum Institute. There he directs one of the world-leading research efforts in ion traps and quantum optics, which are two primary systems to explore and develop quantum technologies. In 2015, Prof. Monroe co-founded the startup IonQ, Inc., and serves as their Chief Scientist. IonQ manufactures and commercially offers full stack quantum computers based on trapped ion technology, which are currently at the forefront of the area due to their superior flexibility, precision and controllability.
Dr. Michele Mosca
Co-Founder and Professor, Institute of Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo
Michele Mosca is a Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Combinatorics & Optimization at the University of Waterloo. He is a founder of the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo and a founding member of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. He leads research in quantum-safe cryptography, quantum algorithms, and quantum circuit synthesis and optimization. In addition to his scientific merits he is globally recognized for his drive to help academia, industry and government prepare cyber systems to be safe in an era with quantum computers. He is a founder of the ETSI-IQC workshop series in Quantum-Safe Cryptography which brings together a broad range of stakeholders working toward globally standardized quantum-safe cryptography. He is also co-founder of evolutionQ Inc. which provides services and products that enable organizations to evolve their quantum-vulnerable systems and practices to quantum-safe ones.
