Event Name:  AS WE ENTER THE NEW QUANTUM ERA (University of Waterloo)
Event Description:  Wednesday, October 5, 2016 - 19:00 to 20:30 Quantum theory rewrote the rulebook for physics over a century ago. We have since moved from being curious spectators of the quantum realm to active participants, intricately choreographing quantum effects to achieve specific objectives. We harness quantum effects for precise measurement, more powerful computation, more secure communication, and many more applications yet to be discovered. The quantum rulebook offers a double-edged sword for cybersecurity: quantum computers will be powerful enough to break some of security currently protecting cyberspace, while the advent of new cybersecurity tools, such as quantum cryptography, will be secure in an era of quantum computers. What's needed is a large, coordinated effort to ensure our digital information will remain secure in the quantum age. Through ongoing advances in quantum information research, we are entering a new era of science and technology (that will be also used in Space Exploration). The challenges are profound, while the possibilities seem limitless. Michele Mosca (Institute for Quantum Computing, Perimeter Institute) will explore quantum technologies -- those that already exist, and those yet to come -- and how they will affect our lives.
