GOGBOT Festival 2020, 10 – 13 September
QUANTUM SUPREMACY (in the Age of Pandemic)
GOGBOT presents a mind-blowing, controversial, but extremely urgent theme: Quantum Supremacy (in the age of Pandemic).
Big companies such as Google, Microsoft, and IBM are competing to build the first quantum computer: a ‘supercomputer’ expected to be a staggering one billion times faster than today’s best computer! What will the quantum future hold?
In this Age of Pandemic, we are made acutely aware of our dependence on digital technology for work, education, and healthcare. Now more than ever, the growth of digital technology demands critical reflection. Globalization and economic growth have brought us pandemic and environmental destruction.
How can we break this cycle? Can we harness quantum technology to protect ourselves and the world we live in?
Sci-fi today? History tomorrow!
GOGBOT offers a playground of convergence. Drawing participants from all over the world are presented, in order to profit from a context of active discovery. We are proud to present the outstanding talents from the Netherlands, supporting this by having the Awards for the best of art and creative technology graduates.
