The World Economic Forum has announced Elija Perrier, a Doctoral Candidate of the University of Technology Sydney, as the lead author of the new set of Quantum Computing Governance Principles. Perrier designed the framework that will integrate quantum computing technology as a social responsibility for policymakers and investors to quantum engineers, researchers, and software developers.
Perrier was a lead drafter of the Quantum Computing Governance Principles, he was working to build the ethical framework with the help of his international multistakeholder team of quantum professionals, emerging technology ethics, and law experts. Elija Perrier’s doctoral research focuses on the field of quantum machine learning, including quantum algorithm design, geometric and statistical learning theory, and quantum control.
Perrier has spent several years advocating for responsible innovation in the design of quantum technologies. He was a research affiliate at the Australian National University’s Humanising Machine Intelligence program and was the first researcher to publish a paper on ethical quantum computing.
