The Embassy of Italy in Washington hosted on June 19 the conference "Quantum Computing: Progress & Prospects", in collaboration with the Italian company Goppion, world leader in the production of exhibition and conservation systems in the museum sector, and the American technology giant, IBM.

The conference provided an opportunity to celebrate the collaboration between IBM and the Italian company that created the showcase capable of displaying and protecting the innovative Q System One.

In the course of the debate the future perspectives of Quantum Computing were tackled from different angles. In fact, quantum technology nowadays has a growing importance, also in light of the potential fallout that such a revolution in the way data is managed and used can have on the future of our societies in terms of scientific, technological and economic developments.

"Technology, design, innovation and creativity were at the center of the evening. Italian excellence, represented by Goppion, meets IBM's American excellence and together they advance in the future. The success of this collaboration is the success of the profound relationship that binds Italy and the United States on every front and especially in the technology field that sees Italy as a protagonist in the USA ", said Ambassador Varricchio.

The discussion with Bob Wisnieff, CTO of the Quantum Computing section of IBM Research, Valentina Harizanov of George Washington University, Celia Merzbacher of the Quantum Economic Development Consortium, Jacob Taylor of the White House Office of Science and Technology, and Fabio Sciarrino of La Sapienza University of Rome, was moderated by Alexandra Levine of the prestigious American publication Politico.
