U of T is bank­ing on the fu­ture of quan­tum com­put­ing

Toronto Life - - This City -

For­get tele­porters and time travel—the most elu­sive tech tri­umph is the quan­tum com­puter, which would use the power of atomic and sub­atomic par­ti­cles to per­form mind-bog­gling pro­cesses. At the Cre­ative de­struc­tion Lab— an in­cu­ba­tor based at U of T’s Rot­man School of Man­age­ment— tech wizards are bank­ing on the quan­tum fu­ture. In Septem­ber, 40 early-stage en­trepreneurs from 16 coun­tries will move to Toronto at the CDL’s ex­pense to em­bark on a train­ing course in quan­tum com­put­ing and ma­chine learn­ing. At the end of the pro­gram, ev­ery­one is free to go home or move to Sil­i­con Val­ley—but they’ll have good rea­son to stay. Those who choose to open an of­fice in Canada will be el­i­gi­ble for an au­to­matic $80,000 (U.S.) to cre­ate their own start-ups.
