      EVENT DETAILS
      John Preskill: Quantum Entanglement and Quantum Computing

      Date: Wednesday April 3, 2013 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
      Location: Beckman Auditorium

      Presented By: Caltech Committee on Institute Programs

      The quantum laws governing atoms and other tiny objects seem to defy common sense, and information encoded in quantum systems has weird properties that baffle our feeble human minds. Preskill will explain why he loves quantum entanglement, the elusive feature making quantum information fundamentally different from information in the macroscopic world. By exploiting quantum entanglement, quantum computers should be able to solve otherwise intractable problems, with far-reaching applications to cryptology, materials science and medicine. Preskill is less weird than a quantum computer, and easier to understand.

      John Preskill is the Richard P. Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics at Caltech.

      Cost: No tickets or reservations required.
