Neil Julien Ross, Dalhousie University

As we approach the development of a quantum computer with tens of
well-controlled qubits, it is natural to ask what can be done with
such a device. Specifically, we would like to construct an example of
a practical problem that is beyond the reach of classical computers,
but that requires the fewest possible resources to solve on a quantum
computer. We address this problem by considering quantum simulation of
spin systems, a task that could be applied to understand phenomena in

Entangled: The series

Hear Raymond Laflamme, founding director of the Institute for Quantum Computing and John von Neumann Chair in Quantum Information and Edwin Outwater, Music Director Laureate of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, as they have a conversation about the making of Does God Play Dice (Quantum Etude).

Radio host Mike Farwell will moderate this conversation about their collaboration that integrated quantum physics and music to create a surprisingly random performance piece. You’ll even have the to watch highlights of the April 20 performance.
