Entering a quantum world
From Ms CHANG Ching Chen _ on October 3rd, 2019
The advent of financial technology, or fintech, has created new opportunities, business models, products and services. Fintech innovations have disrupted the financial industry, leading to novel ways of delivering financial services, not only by traditional financial institutions but also by start-ups.
There is now a new way of computing that uses extremely small objects called 'quantum' that could revolutionise the power and accuracy of computations from artificial intelligence to financial investments.
Associate Professor Paul Griffin is a financial technology expert at the SMU School of Information Systems; he is also Director of the Financial Technology track under the SMU Master of IT in Business programme. In this podcast, Prof Griffin, who has started researching into the efficacies of quantum computers, shares his research findings and discusses how he sees quantum computers developing in the near future.
