Enrichment Experience: Quantum Computing - Transforming the Digital AgeExport this event to calendar

Saturday, May 9, 2015 — 7:00 PM EDT

Enrich your learning experience by attending a guest lecture at the University of Waterloo! Academic related events are a great opportunity to engage with the wider university community and learn about the innovative research occurring around the world today. It is also a fantastic way to practice your listening and speaking skills in English.


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.
