HPC+AI Wall Street will showcase ‘spooky’ science for financial services


Albert Einstein described quantum mechanics as “frightening action at a distance” due to the unintuitive nature of superposition and quantum entangled particles. It’s a good thing that you don’t need to grasp the intricacies of advanced physics to take advantage of these technologies when applied to real-world practical applications in financial services and other verticals – just like you don’t need an electrical engineering degree. use a conventional computer.

The opening panel of the HPC+ Wall Street conference (September 20-21, New York) delves into the hot topic of quantum computing, which could bring massive competitive advantage to many financial services applications such as portfolio optimization, risk management, secure communications and much more.

Four expert panelists will provide advice aimed at helping companies begin to develop quantum readiness strategies. The panel will be moderated by John Russell, one of HPCwire’s editors and the editor of our new quantum-focused microsite and newsletter, QCwire.

Each panelist will speak briefly about an area of ​​interest, explains Russell. Basically, they will look at 1) QC investment trends – where the money is flowing is often an important indicator of segment dynamics – 2) QC vendor community and use cases, 3) some early deployments quantum computing – at this stage not one is using quantum computing in a production environment, but many public and private projects are underway, 4) We also have a global futurist in the panel, which should be interesting listening.

Now owned and produced by Tabor Communications, this year’s HPC+AI on Wall Street will be held in person at the Intercontinental Times Square Hotel, September 20-21. The event promises two days of information-rich sessions led by prominent thought leaders and experts, focusing on four themes: quantum computing, HPC, data management and AI – and most importantly, how these areas intersect and converge.

“It’s the convergence paradigm and there’s no frills,” said Tom Tabor, industry watcher and CEO of Tabor Communications. “This program is hyper focused on the future and the convergence of HPC, AI and data. This is one not to be missed.”

Notable quotes from a few of the speakers:

“It’s relatively easy to catch up if you fall behind in a typical IT environment. If you fall behind in Quantum, it will be extremely hard to catch up!” —Marco Pistoia, JPMorgan Chase

“HPC powers financial services, but quantum computing will deliver far greater (competitive) advantages to those who are prepared for it.” — Jay Boisseau, Dell Technologies

“Rather than vilifying interest in quantum as hype, let’s encourage sustained and thoughtful investment in space.” — Alex Challans, Quantum Insider

“Discover how you can take advantage of quantum computing, even without trashing your entire HPC infrastructure.” — Sam Mugel, PhD, Multiverse Computing

“Quantum computing will create financial opportunity measured not in billions or trillions, but in quadrillions and quintillions.” —William ‘whurley’ Hurley, Strangeworks

“It’s not about general use, it’s about a generally specialized area. Speed ​​up the good stuff! —Ryan Quick, Providentia Worldwide

“Hidden in the mounds of data is knowledge that could revolutionize your business. AI shows you how. — Arti Garg, HPE

“Open source solutions fuel adaptability and innovation, but fall far short of solving AI transparency issues.” — Alexei Zhukov, EPAM
