NYU’s Javad Shabani Champions the Next Frontier in Computing, Promises Revolutionary Advances in Medicine & Finance

As classical computing runs up against its limits, the quantum race heats up to unlock the power of computers that could revolutionize drug discovery and financial modeling. Leading that charge is NYU Physics Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Quantum Information Physics Javad Shabani.

In Shabani’s eyes, quantum computing represents “the next generation of computing technology.”

“Quantum computing, because chemistry is naturally quantum the smallest level, can actually help with drug discovery and materials discovery,” he said in a short film by NYUArtsandScience recently. The implications could be profound, potentially even leading to “some kind of cure for cancer.”

Harnessing the mind-bending principles of quantum mechanics is no easy feat. But Shabani remains optimistic about the future impact, noting: “if we can make one [a quantum computer], I think our future will also be different the same way that the last 100 years it has you know revolutionized by classical computing.”

The potential applications of quantum computing extend far beyond healthcare. Shabani stated that over the last century, there have been improvements in computational capabilities. He suggested that quantum computers could enhance this progress significantly, enabling breakthroughs in finance through improved predictions, training of models, and solving complex problems.
