Hear from Dr James Palles-Dimmock, CEO of UK-based Quantum Motion, developing silicon-based qubit architectures for quantum computing.

One of the most fascinating and fundamental challenges facing the quantum computing industry is establishing which material and architecture will ultimately prove the most stable for processing quantum information. Research and development from the university and startup sector taking place in Sydney and the UK has seen silicon-based architectures gain significant momentum and investment dollars over the past couple of years.

The UK-based Quantum Motion is one company helping to prove silicon’s potential. It’s on a mission to develop scalable quantum computers by harnessing silicon technology already in use in today’s smartphones and computers.

Join us to hear from CEO, Dr James Palles-Dimmock. James has raised over £60m in funds for Quantum Motion from an international investor base and grown it from scratch to a team of over 40. We’ll hear about his journey, his view on Australia’s quantum industry and where to next for Quantum Motion.

The discussion and Q&A session will be chaired by Petra Andren, Head of Innovation Districts, Greater Cities Commission.

Program

  • 4.45pm: Doors open

  • 5:00 - 6:00 pm: Presentation + Q&A session
