A proof-of-concept demonstration beats the best known classical protocol

Quantum fingerprinting concept

Computer scientists, including Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) members John Watrous and Richard Cleve have long been looking at protocols where quantum communication offers an advantage compared to the classical case. However technology hasn’t progressed as quickly, so researchers had previously been unable to implement the protocols.

New Quantum Cats game launches to build better understanding of quantum concepts

Quantum Cats game

A new Angry Birds-style game is set to help launch a new understanding of quantum science.

Some find the concepts of quantum science confusing or unintuitive. Einstein even called quantum effects “spooky." To help people better understand some of the core concepts of quantum science, the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo is launching a game – the Quantum Cats.
