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.
Metrology allows process engineers to see the results of process steps. Today, driving improvements in chip performance, power and area/cost (PPAC) requires novel architectures and exotic material stacks. This is introducing new sources of atomic-scale variation that can negatively impact chip performance and yield. It is becoming imperative to “watch” the deposition process as it occurs to control variability and deliver repeatable performance.
There is no place like CES to see the most exciting new and future displays. Beyond traditional technologies like television, displays also featured prominently in many of the big trends at the show: AI, automotive, VR, IoT and connectivity.
At the inaugural Tech for Global Good Celebration, five innovators were honored for applying technology to address critical human needs, and author and philanthropic activist Khaled Hosseini received the James C. Morgan Global Humanitarian Award.
