The two-day virtual event hosted by the DIA Chief Information Office (CIO) and Chief Technology Office (CTO) will take place on May 11-12, 2022.
Dr. Narang will participate in a panel discussion of Quantum Computing moderated by Ramesh Menon, Chief Technology Officer in the Office of the CIO at the Defense Intelligence Agency where he is responsible for technology and strategy planning, experimentation, and emerging technology solutions architecture. Also on the panel are Dr. William Layton, Senior Subject Matter Expert for Quantum Resistant Cryptography with the National Security Agency and Dr. Joanna Ptasinski, Head of the Cryogenic Electronics and Quantum Research Branch, Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Pacific. The Quantum Computing panel is on May 11th at 1420 EDT.
Dr. Narang is a renowned scholar in theoretical and computational quantum science. In addition to her role as CTO of Aliro Quantum, Dr. Narang is an Assistant Professor at Harvard University where she leads the NarangLab, an interdisciplinary group working on topics at the vibrant intersection of theoretical and computational quantum information science, condensed matter physics, and quantum photonics. UCLA recently announced that she will join their faculty in physical sciences as the Howard Reiss Chair effective July 1, 2022, and transition the NarangLab to UCLA where the team will continue and expand its work.
The DIA Future Technologies Symposium will discuss the challenges and opportunities posed by emerging technologies, current initiatives, successes, and opportunities for integration with government stakeholders, academia, and the private sector.
