Your Challenge

  • Our hyper-connected world, where commercial transactions and information exchanges routinely occur online, is predicated on the availability of secure communication channels.
  • Machine learning is being applied across industries, particularly in pattern recognition applications, be it voice, image, or click-behavior, for digital personal assistants, transportation services, and online product support.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • The prevalent method for securing data payloads is, according to national security agencies, under clear, though still emerging, threat from quantum technologies.
  • The neural network topology, which best supports a learning algorithm, is limited by classical computer architecture.
  • Generic drugs are flooding the markets, putting ever downward pressure on margins, which hampers the development of innovative drugs.

Impact and Result

  • Learn the key enabling components of quantum capability so that you can communicate to the business how this technology works.
  • Adopt an approach to assess quantum capability to measure the progress of this technological innovation.
  • Grow your emerging trends scanning practice by developing a foresight capability in IT.
