Panel discussion

Communication networks are an essential part of our world today, used in transactions from banking to education, global business exchanges to defence. What happens when our private information is no longer private? Powerful quantum computers will have the ability to crack the encryption of public keys that we currently use to secure our data, putting our privacy at risk.

In this panel discussion, we’ll hear from three researchers who are at the forefront of discovery and application of quantum communication research:

  • Katanya Kuntz, Research Associate, IQC and QEYSSat Science Team Coordinator
  • Sara Zafar Jafarzadeh, Research Fellow, IQC and Cryptographer, Synopsys Inc.
  • Dave Touchette, Professor, Institut Quantique, Université de Sherbrook
