Cybersecurity in a quantum world - will we be ready?

Public lecture by Michele Mosca

Emerging quantum technologies will change the way that our online information is stored and secured. To be cyber-safe we must be quantum-safe. It’s possible, but we need to start planning now if we want to be ready in time.

Ty Volkoff, University of California, Berkeley

Two measures of macroscopicity for quantum superpositions in countably infinite dimensional Hilbert space will be introduced: one depending on the optimal distinguishability of the components of the superposition under measurements of subsets of particles and another based on the ratio of the quantum Fisher information of the superposition to that of its components.
