Quantum and Future Computing
Quantum systems promise to change our world, from improved modeling and simulation to kickstarting the next generation of cybersecurity. At the same time, classical computing architectures are pushing the limits of what’s possible almost daily.
FCAT is devoted to ensuring that our customers benefit from the opportunities that quantum and other computing technologies present and are protected from the threats they pose.
About the Incubator
Our team explores quantum and high-performance computing technologies to understand how they might impact Fidelity’s customers and our business.
While commercial benefits from quantum and other emerging computing hardware are probably 3-5 years away, there's a lot to prepare for – and security threats are appearing now. Our team works to identify the mathematical problems and use-cases that can benefit from these systems and to develop novel algorithms to leverage them. We’re also developing and implementing post-quantum cybersecurity measures to mitigate both current and future threats. By planning and researching these systems now, we can help ensure that our customers will benefit and be kept secure in the future.
