You may well have heard of Quantum Computing, a computing paradigm based on the rather weird world of quantum mechanics where a Qubit can be 1 and 0 at the same time. While it promises an enormous step change in the speed of some types of currently intractable calculations, including those that underpin our current information security technologies, it has always been 10-15 years away. But what is the current status of Quantum Computing research? Who are the players in the hardware and software of quantum? What will the killer applications really be? And is it still 10-15 years away?
In this session we will be talking to Ilyas Khan about these questions. Ilyas is the Founder and CEO of Cambridge Quantum Computing ("CQC"). Headquartered in Cambridge and with a presence in London and the USA, CQC is the world's leading independent quantum algorithm developer and also has a strong focus on AI. Prior to establishing CQC, Ilyas was the founding partner in Accelerate Cambridge, the University of Cambridge Judge Business school's highly successful accelerator programme. Ilyas is also the Chairman of The Stephen Hawking Foundation and a Fellow of St Edmund's College, Cambridge. He is a regular and extensive writer, commentator and speaker on topics relating to quantum computing, computational complexity and free will in the context of quantum information, and has a long standing interest in the philosophy of mathematics. He is a Life Member of the American Mathematical Society.
This session will give you insight into what Quantum Computing really is, what it promises to deliver, and views on when it might be a reality.(image)

In this episode Chris Risner and Hannah Krager are joined by Chetan Agarwal, Principal Program Manager on the Azure Compute Team. Chetan joins us to talk about Managed Disks, a greatly simplified way of managing storage accounts used with VM disks. When using Managed Disks, you just specify if you want Premium or Standard storage and the size of disks you want and the service handles everything else for you. Managed Disks also offers new features such as availability set isolation, snapshots, and images.

Display technology and usage scenarios have changed significantly since the time when many desktop app technologies were first introduced. Many desktop UI frameworks on Windows have, historically, struggled to keep up with modern usage scenarios such as handling multiple displays with different DPI values or handling dynamic DPI changes (docking/undocking, RDP, mixed-DPI). This has resulted in desktop applications that can render blurry or be sized incorrectly. In this session we'll discuss what Microsoft is doing to address these challenges, including new APIs and technologies targeted at high-DPI usage scenarios for desktop apps.
