Quantum computing is an emerging new technology which promises to completely change computing as we know it. In particular, the advent of quantum computers poses a serious threat to cybersecurity. Encryption methods hailed as ‘unbreakable’ by classical computers can be cracked by quantum computers in a matter of hours. In this talk, we will discuss the basics of quantum computing and how it could be used to attack common encryption algorithms. We also introduce and evaluate the top candidates to replace our current encryption methods for a post-quantum era.


Leading this presentation is Data Reply’s Quantum Computing Consultant Anuj Doshi, an Oxford alumnus who has been working on quantum computing applications for over a year, specializing in quantum circuit architectures in machine learning. Joining him is recent Cambridge graduate Vasundhara Prasad, who has previously worked on financial uses of gate-based quantum computing and is now working on other quantum computing applications.
