Quantum Computing: Transforming the Digital AgeExport this event to calendar

Tuesday, June 9, 2015 — 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM EDT

Arts students, faculty and staff working in/with digital media may be interested in this public lecture presented by UWaterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC).

Public lecture by Dr. Krysta Svore, Microsoft Research

In 1981, Richard Feynman proposed a device called a “quantum computer” to take advantage of the laws of quantum physics to achieve computational speed-ups over classical methods. Quantum computing promises to revolutionize how we compute. Over the course of three decades, quantum algorithms have been developed that offer fast solutions to problems in a variety of fields including number theory, optimization, chemistry, physics, and materials science. Quantum devices have also significantly advanced such that components of a scalable quantum computer have been demonstrated in a variety of quantum systems. In this talk, I will attempt to reveal some of the mysteries of this disruptive computational paradigm. I will showcase recent advances in quantum algorithms for real-world applications and in scalable, fault-tolerant devices.
