The quantum technologist

If the pace of today’s technological development has left you desperately trying to catch up, you’re in luck: Dr. Robert Sutor is coming to explain the world of quantum computing (and how to use it). An innovator and technologist with more than 30 years experience at IBM, he specializes in not only quantum computing but also artificial intelligence, blockchain, analytics, big data, software development, open source, Linux, cloud computing and mathematics – among other deeply technical skills. And very importantly, given an emerging field rife with complexities, Robert is approachable. The VP of IBM Q Strategy and Ecosystem at IBM Research is a techie who knows how to talk to people. A widely-read blogger and frequent international speaker on unfolding industrial sciences, he casually claims that “Math is not scary, it is elegant.” With this grace and sophistication, he is leading IBM’s R&D group to develop the next generation software stack and algorithms for quantum computers.
“This is not magic, it is science.”
