The summit in 3 words: happening, varied, exciting – Andre Xuereb

An exclusive interview with Andre Xuereb

Andre Xuereb, Associate Professor at the University of Malta  talks to the Malta A.I. and Blockchain Summit about  the push towards building a quantum tech marketplace in Malta. “There’s a bit of a hype fest around quantum computers, but there’s a lot of money being poured into them to get them working. I would say in the next couple of years we’ll probably see something being sold which is probably faster than any other computer – it will be a specific purpose quantum computer working alongside a supercomputer that does something quicker.” “The biggest problem is distance, I can give you an ultra secure link as long as the 2 points aren’t’ further away than 150 kilometres, which for a big country is a problem, but for us over here it’s not such a big problem. The idea is to recognise that we have the strength and to build the world’s first market in this and be the first movers.”
