In his own words, Marc Morin is “addicted to the game.”
Morin is the CEO and co-founder at Auvik Networks, pronounced awe-vik, as in awesome. “It’s like having a child who does way better than you and it’s awesome,” Morin explained at the CryptoWorks21 Distinguished Lecture last fall. Elaborating on his evolving role as a CEO in a tech company, he shared lessons learned—the mistakes he made and the things he got right—during his personal journey as a serial technology entrepreneur.
Quantum computers can solve a linear algebra problem faster than classical computers, according to a new study published in Science. The finding proves that constant-depth quantum circuits are more powerful than their classical counterparts, and provides a new sense of how quantum technology will be a key to more powerful computing.
The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) congratulates Donna Strickland, Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, on receiving the 2018 Nobel Prize for her research in the field of laser physics.
“I am beyond thrilled to congratulate my colleague Donna Strickland,” said Raymond Laflamme, founding director of IQC. “Her ground-breaking work has propelled research in this field forward, leading to discoveries and applications in laser physics and enabling experiments in other areas, including quantum information.”
