Our partner, Aspen Center for Physics, offers FREE public talks most Thursdays in the summer.
Matthias Troyer, Microsoft Research, will explore: “A Quantum Future of Computation”
“A century after the development of quantum mechanics we have reached exciting times where we have not only come to terms with the weird laws governing our world, but have started to build computational devices that make use of these quantum effects. Quantum random number generators and quantum communication systems are already commercially available. Work on quantum computers is accelerating, and computational capabilities beyond that of any imaginable classical computer seem just over the horizon. I will discuss the origin of the exceptional computational power of quantum computers and how they may be used to solve important scientific, economic and societal problems that are” “impossible for classical computers.”
