The Promise of Quantum Computing in the 21st Century

Speaker: Murthy Rallapalli (Jacksonville State University – USA)
Date: Friday, April 16, 2021
Time: 12:30–13:30 (Central Time)
Duration: 1 hour
Room: Room 1

Today’s computers are more powerful than anytime ever in the history of mankind. Crunching numbers appears to have no limitations using these powerful machines built on using classical computing technologies. However, in spite of this mind-boggling power of computing, there are still some intractable calculations and problems we cannot solve using the most advanced compute power of today. Our most advanced supercomputers seem unable to withstand the needs of our digital society generating enormous quantities of data every second of the day worldwide. Computers using the principles of quantum physics, offers some promise to solve problems hard for conventional computers. This session reviews the concepts of quantum computing, its current state and future promise. It will also review some potential applications in the financial and healthcare industry.

Murthy Rallapalli is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Jacksonville State University, in Jacksonville, Alabama. He is a 2021-2022 Fulbright scholar awardee by the US State Department in the area of Cloud Computing and Cyber Security. In addition, he is an active IBM Quantum ambassador with collaborative research interests in leveraging quantum algorithms in optimization problems. He has served on many journal boards and is currently serving as a reviewer for the 2021 IEEE SoutheastCon conference. His industry experience includes companies like IBM and Ernst & Young, in the areas of Information Security and Cloud Security. He has published a number of books and papers, and holds patents in the area of data privacy and information security. He received his Ph.D. from the Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey, in information security and privacy, and got a Quantum Computing certificate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, Massachusetts.
