Mark Jackson is Scientific Lead of Business Development at Cambridge Quantum Computing. Dr. Jackson draws on this variety of deep expertise in scientific innovations, computational technology and space exploration to engage with the Singularity University community. As Core Faculty in Exponential Technology his responsibilities have included developing curriculum, delivering presentations, writing, and appearing in video expositions about quantum computing, data science, artificial intelligence, and others. He has delivered lectures in 19 countries, and spoken as an expert on multiple panels.
Recognizing the emerging importance of data science, Jackson has completed intense training in statistics, machine learning, programming, project design, and communication. In particular, he has been closely following the evolution of quantum computing, maintaining close connections with industrial leaders as the next generation of computers becomes reality. He has lectured and privately consulted with corporate executives on how quantum computing will disrupt their field.
Jackson recently organized the Dawn of Private Space Science symposium bringing together leading scientists, foundations, corporations, policy makers, and commercial spacelines under one roof to create opportunities for scientific research in space. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the BoldlyGo Institute, a non-profit organization founded to address highly compelling scientific questions through new approaches to developing space science missions while engaging the global community in the quest. Last year he co-organized the NASA SpaceApps NYC 2016, a technology development and problem solving event during which citizens from around the world collaborate to tackle challenges that improve life on Earth and further the exploration of space.
