Quantum Computing - Why You Should Be Interested

Quantum computing is predestined to become one of the most disruptive technologies in the following years. Harnessing the power of quantum effects to do computation promises to solve several open problems in many areas, from engineering to drug design. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to ascertain what is fact and what are unrealistic expectations, and even more importantly, what will be available in the following years, and what only after many decades of research.

In this talk, Carlos Outeiral, Oxford PhD student at the National Quantum Technologies Hub, will deliver an uncomplicated introduction to quantum computing and outline what we can expect to see in the following decade.

This is the first of the Green Templeton Outreach Talks, funded by a Green Templeton College Academic Initiatives Grant.
