Transformative Quantum Technologies

There are many paths one can take as a researcher interested in bringing new capabilities to industry. One increasingly common route is to join a start-up. There are many genres of start-ups, from the early-stage university spin-offs to VC-backed firms with multiple trenches of funding under their belt. How do you value these different set of experiences and what are the opportunities?

Co-organized by the National Research Council of Canada 

The meeting brings together the Canadian community of scientists and engineers who perform research and development on spin-based quantum technologies. This will be the third annual workshop, with the main goal to foster spin qubit research and attract and train highly qualified personnel for the emerging quantum technologies sector in Canada.

Carbon Based Flexible and Multi-Component Self-Powered Devices

Dogan Sinar

Carbon and its allotropes have been researched intensively for their potential applications in various fields including energy storage/generation, sensor technology, and wearable electronics. Graphene and graphene oxide have especially drawn attention during the last decade due their unique electrical, chemical, and mechanical properties.

Thursday, May 23, 2019 — 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM EDT
Transformative Quantum Technologies

This presentation will delve into a practical example of a patent procedure associated to a specific quantum technology: quantum random number generator. We will explore the specifics of the technology and its applications, review previously existing approaches and define the inventive step, explore the phrasing of the claims, and revisit the prior patents from the freedom-to-operate point of view.

Wednesday, May 22, 2019 — 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM EDT

Speaker: Thomas K. Hunter and Neil Henderson

Abstract:

A lot of different concepts and possibilities have been discussed. The final session will recap those and put them in perspective, with emphasis on the relevance to a "typical" university start up and the people involved.


This is the final lecture in the CryptoWorks21 Intellectual Property (IP) Management Lunch and Learn Lecture Series. Knowledgeable speakers will give in-depth presentations that build on previous sessions.

“Quantum physics” has taken its position with “rocket science” in pop culture as a shorthand for frighteningly complicated science. Quantum physics has also taken on a sort of magical connotation in fiction, with features like entanglement, superposition, and tunneling, spurring imagination. But where does the science draw the line? How much is joyful speculation, and how much is disregard for reality? And if it’s always seen as either magical or scary, how does that affect the perception of quantum science?

Duality Quantum Computing: Computing with Linear Combinations of Unitaries

Gui-Lu Long, APS and IoP Fellow

Optimization Algorithms for Quantum Deep Learning

PhD Candidate: Guillaume Verdon-Akzam

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 — 12:00 PM EDT

Speaker: Viona M. Duncan

Abstract: We all want to be the nice guy, but we do not want to finish last. How should we respect the IP of others, particularly confidential information and what should we expect of others when we provide confidential information to them? Simple steps that can be taken to meet obligations and preserve confidentiality will be discussed. You may also have obligations to funding agencies and the University. The UW IP policy will be discussed along with issues of ownership and employee confidentiality.

Anand Natarajan, Caltech

A long-standing puzzle in quantum complexity theory is to understand the power of the class MIP* of multiprover interactive proofs with shared entanglement. This question is closely related to the study of entanglement through non-local games, which dates back to the pioneering work of Bell.
