Young AFCEA Washington, DC is proud to host Quantum Computing Tech Talk: What it is and How it will Change the Future of Government 

Advances in computers and computing power has transformed our lives over the last several decades, but today’s capabilities have their limits.  Cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning represent the most recent efforts to transform the way we live and work.  Arguably, none of these technologies will have such a profound impact on our future and our lives as quantum computing.  What is it and how will it change the future of government?

Join us on Tuesday April 30th at 5 p.m. for our second Tech Talk event of the year, as we bring together perspectives from government and industry to discuss the priorities and pitfalls surrounding quantum computing.

The Tech Talk event offers an intimate and engaging environment for the brightest minds in industry and government to come together and discuss some of the transformational technologies and business challenges we are currently facing. This event provides a forum where you can not only learn about new technology, but you have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with senior leaders.

The Young AFCEA Washington, DC Chapter holds professional development events, co-hosts the annual West Point Leadership and Ethics Symposium for local high school students, and holds a number of networking events throughout the year.
