Quantum computing promises to revolutionise our work and life. In this free talk Dr Nicolas Menicucci provides an insight into how recent advances in technology are bringing this world closer.
For a young baby, if an object is no longer in view, it no longer exists. This is not far from the truth in the world of quantum theory! Yet what we lose in object permanence we gain in new resources for technology.
RMIT's Dr Nicolas Menicucci provides a glimpse into this amazing world, including how to weave laser light into a quantum computer capable of revolutionising the way we design materials, discover medicines and secure our communications.
The amazing world of the quantum awaits.
