Our recent Open Innovation Workshop brought together quantum technology leaders from across the ecosystem to identify key challenges in quantum information systems and explore opportunities for collaboration. The central theme that emerged from the day is that quantum is about so much more than computing; there are many applications in areas like sensing, metrology and communications encryption on the near-term horizon.
