#3013 Quantum Computing and Our Global Economy

Instructor: Royal Aubrey Davis, LLM, JD

Quantum computing has the potential to be one of the most disruptive technologies of our era. Many scholars have commented that quantum computing can completely decrypt all of our existing computer-based security tools in less than a decade, which could have significant impacts on the finance, trade, and defense sectors. However, both the technology and the underlying policy implications are widely misunderstood. This lecture will seek to increase understanding of the underlying technologies and what we presently know regarding the potential impacts that quantum computing will have on our global economy.
