Profound impact of early discovery, experimentation and disruption through research and invention (September 14, 2020)

Researchers today build on the knowledge and discoveries made by those who have come before them. How can today’s researchers light the early pathways and curiosities for the research breakthroughs of the future? How can we demonstrate the impact and potential of the yet-to-be known? And, what if any, role does academia, industry, the Faculty of Mathematics, and Canada play in increasing the discovery journey to these new frontiers?

In this webinar, Camelia Nunez, the Faculty of Mathematics’ Director of Innovation and Research Partnerships, hosted a fireside conversation with Professor Michele Mosca (BMath '95), co-founder of Waterloo's Centre for Cryptographic Research and the Institute for Quantum Computing, and a leader in the field of quantum information.
