Sam Harris, IQC/Department of Pure Mathematics
Last time we looked at unitary correlation sets, and obtained an analogue of Tsirelson's problem that is equivalent to the original one. In this talk, we'll see how unitary correlations can be thought of as strategies for a certain class of two-player (extended) non-local games, called quantum XOR games. Moreover, we'll see that Connes' embedding problem is equivalent to determining whether every quantum XOR game has the same winning probability in the commuting model as in the approximate finite-dimensional model.
Carbon Based Flexible and Multi-Component Self-Powered Devices
Carbon and its allotropes have been researched intensively for their potential applications in various fields including energy storage/generation, sensor technology, and wearable electronics. Graphene and graphene oxide have especially drawn attention during the last decade due their unique electrical, chemical, and mechanical properties.
Join us at the Institute for Quantum Computing for a two-week introduction to the theoretical and experimental study of quantum information processing.
During the Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) will be exposed to lectures and experiments on the following topics and more.
Byoung Ham, Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology
Electromagnetically induced transparency and Autler-Townes splitting in superconducting quantum circuits
ψ-epistemic interpretations of quantum theory have a measurement problem
The event will feature a panel of four speakers who will share how their agency or organization supports start-ups and commercialization of IP, including funding sources and services available to faculty and start-ups. Each panelist will provide a brief presentation and respond to a set of questions followed by a Q&A session. Informal networking will take place between 1:00pm and 1:30pm.
Academic Writing Workshop #2
Elisabeth van Stam (UW Writing and Communication Center)
Learning to effectively communicate your research is an essential skill necessary for success within academia. Join Elisabeth van Stam (STEM Specialist) as she introduces you to the Writing and Communication Centre (WCC) services and resources that will help you successfully accomplish your research milestones.
Co-organized by the National Research Council of Canada
The meeting brings together the Canadian community of scientists and engineers who perform research and development on spin-based quantum technologies. This will be the third annual workshop, with the main goal to foster spin qubit research and attract and train highly qualified personnel for the emerging quantum technologies sector in Canada.
There are many paths one can take as a researcher interested in bringing new capabilities to industry. One increasingly common route is to join a start-up. There are many genres of start-ups, from the early-stage university spin-offs to VC-backed firms with multiple trenches of funding under their belt. How do you value these different set of experiences and what are the opportunities?
The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) will run August 9-16, 2019 with students arriving August 8 and departing August 17. Apply for QCSYS and discover how the physics and mathematics of quantum mechanics and cryptography merge into one of the most exciting topics in contemporary science – quantum cryptography.
