QED-C Deputy Director, Celia Merzbacher to speak at Genius Machines summit

About the event
As government agencies work to continue meeting their missions through COVID-19, advances in supercomputing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and big data collection and analysis are all being brought to bear on the pandemic. As the nation faces unparalleled challenges in everything from healthcare to space to national security, what role will artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies play? How are experts factoring in ethical considerations and what will a future shaped by these technologies look like? This fall’s Genius Machines event won’t be the same as in years past, but neither is the technology. Nextgov and Defense One editors will convene forward-thinking leaders in the federal government and defense communities to discuss developments and opportunities related to AI applications and more. Join us for this virtual summit delving into all the innovative, game-changing—and emerging—technology being developed and deployed to meet the mission.

QED-C Deputy Director Celia Merzbacher will discuss the U.S. quantum computing landscape, the consortium and similar topics.
