NASA Quantum Future Technologies Conference

Despite a comprehensive and rapid advance of quantum technologies in recent years with several breakthrough areas emerging there has been no in-depth systematic discussion so far on how the quantum revolution can benefit National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA) missions and objectives. This conference aims to bring together NASA scientists with the best quantum technology experts from academia, government and industry to identify the areas and challenges in Space Exploration, Aeronautics, Earth and Space Science where quantum technologies can have the greatest impact. The conference will focus on 3 areas: Quantum Measurement (QM), Quantum Computing (QC) and Quantum cryptography and key distribution (QK).

The DWave blog has five videos of talks a the NASA Quantum future technologies conference on Adiabatic quantum computing. There were at least ifve other adiabatic quantum computer talk. There were about fifty talks (ten at least were Adiabatic quantum computer related).
