Global Future Council on Quantum Computing

Council mission and objectives

Although the development of quantum computing is still at an early stage, the technology is expected to affect entire industries and contribute to solving some of the most pressing and complex challenges faced by humanity. From advances in computing capabilities to drug design, this revolutionary technology holds many promises but is not well understood. The Global Future Council on Quantum Computing will play a pivotal role in introducing to a broad audience the technology’s transformational power and highlight direct applications for vertical industries. More concretely, the council will explore key messages and calls-to-action to be leveraged across channels, share educational resources, insight and tools, and emphasize the importance of a pre-competitive open innovation environment, which will accelerate the moment when humanity can fully benefit from the power of quantum computing.

Forum Council Managers:
- Claude Dyer, Community Coordinator, Shaping the Future of Digital Economy and New Value Creation, World Economic Forum
- Eric White, Head of Information Technologies and Electronics, Shaping the Future of Digital Economy and New Value Creation, World Economic Forum

Mobilizing thought leadership for impact
