Quantum Information and Curved Spacetimes: The adventure of Relativistic Quantum information (RQI)
In approximately an hour (measured in some reference frame) we will take a stroll around the muddy fields in which general relativity and quantum mechanics meet with information theory. We will shamelessly talk about very indecorous topics such as grad student life, warp drives, time travel, or even (god forbid!) thermodynamics. Hopefully by the end of it we will have some vague idea of the kind of things that people in the “relatively” new field of RQI do with their spare time, and if all goes well, it will hopefully feel like an hour well spent.
