As Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology Distinguished Lecturer, Professor Dorit Aharonov is giving a series of talks targeted to varied audiences.
Quantum computation is in the news; there is a lot of excitement, a long time promise for a technological revolution, and quite a bit of hype. In this introductory talk, Professor Dorit Aharonov (Hebrew University) will try to offer a take on some basic questions:
- What are quantum long-time computers, and why do they attract so much attention from industry and academics alike?
- What are those promising "exponential quantum algorithmic advantages" and what could we do with large quantum computers?
- Finally, what are the main challenges that the quantum industry is facing, and when will it manage to fulfil its promise?
This public talk is designed for anybody curious about quantum science – even complete beginners. The lecture will be followed by an opportunity to ask the speaker questions.
