AFCEA London Chapter – Face-to-Face Meeting.

The second meeting for our 2022 / 2023 Season, will held be on Thursday 6th October. We are very kindly being hosted by IBM UK, at their 20 York Road, London SE1 7NDT offices, close to Waterloo Station and The London Eye.

The theme of the evening will be “Why is quantum computing strategically important in maintaining technological advantage? Why is it an attractive career option for young people today and what can we do to encourage more talent and investment into the sector?”

The format of the evening will be along the following lines:

There will be three 10 minute “Ted” short presentations from invited speakers. (Further details on the speakers will be announced shortly).

  • A Government speaker
  • An Industry speaker from VC/Investor background
  • A Young IBM Quantum Ambassador

Following the presentations, there will be a facilitated Q&A panel session.

Drinks and refreshments will be served and then guests will be invited to form into 3 groups for a quick tour of the following ‘topical’ demonstration areas:

  • Reinforcement Learning (AI racetrack) + Robotics (SPOT)
  • Mayflower Autonomous Ship (real world application of AI)
  • Quantum Computing

We know that this will be a very popular and absolutely fascinating evening at a great venue. Numbers will be limited to eighty people, on a first come first served basis, but we would encourage any corporate members to bring along a grad trainee or apprentice, who can attend at the mil / gov discounted rate.
