The Future of Silicon-based Quantum Computing

On 19 September 2023, MIMOS organised its latest TechCafe series. This particular episode emphasised the infinite opportunities of quantum computing.


The discussion commenced with guest speaker, Dr Nai Shyan Lai, an Associate Professor at Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU/APIIT). As a pioneer in silicon-based quantum computing, Dr Nai presented his research on silicon-based quantum dots and the innovative aspirations behind it.

Conducted semi-virtually, the talk invited MIMOSians and technological experts who had the opportunity to delve into the uncharted realms of silicon-based quantum computing and what the industry offers. Following the end of Dr Nai’s sharing, participants of the event engaged in thought-provoking discussions about silicon-based quantum computing and its feasibility in the present market.
