Event Details

In this talk, Freeke Heijman will explain the basic laws of quantum mechanics and its applications in new technologies. Superposition and entanglement form the basis of a new computing paradigm with exponential speed-up in computing power. What is the advantage of quantum computers above classical computers and what applications are foreseen? How will this affect our society and on what time scale? What is the global landscape in which this technology is coming to age?
