Communication networks are an essential part of our world today, used in transactions from banking to education, global business exchanges to defence. What happens when our private information is no longer private? Powerful quantum computers will have the ability to crack the encryption of public keys that we currently use to secure our data, putting our privacy at risk.

Local-dimension-invariant stabilizer codes

Protection of quantum information is a central challenge in building a quantum computer. Quantum error-correcting codes can correct for logical errors that occur in the system. A particularly well-studied category is stabilizer codes, such as the 9-qubit Shor code, as these are the quantum analogue of classical additive codes. Qudits (particles with local-dimension greater than 2) have more computational basis states per particle than qubits and retain this feature in stabilizer codes.

Scientists of all backgrounds and genders, have made important contributions in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), but the participation of women remains low in many areas of STEM, including physics. What can we do to build an inclusive STEM community? Shohini Ghose, IQC associate and Director of the Laurier Centre for Women in Science (WinS) will discuss data that can shed light on where we stand today and describe a practical framework for increasing access and inclusion in STEM.
