SUBJECT: “QUANTUM COMPUTING: WHY, HOW AND WHEN"
Can't make it to the lecture? We will have a link to the livestream the day of the lecture.
Refreshments will be served afterward in the McNamara Atrium
Abstract: This lecture is about a future technology, quantum computing, which uses known laws of quantum physics to compute in new ways. Within this technology challenge are at least two profound questions in basic science: which problems can be sped up with a quantum computer, and how can inadvertent measurement be avoided. After a few introductory comments about the first question, this lecture will concern mostly the second question, and will explore some options and the challenges of each.
