Our Quirky Quantum World
Abstract: Our universe is unquestionably quantum in nature. What does this mean? Why does it matter? What’s in it for me? Join us for a fun and fascinating session on “what you need to know about the quantum.” Find out why we can’t live without it. Discover what’s so unbelievably quirky about it. And learn how it empowers amazing technologies, from present day (e.g. every electronic device on the planet) to future possibilities including quantum computing and global quantum communication. The half hour multimedia presentation will be followed by a half hour question and answer session with a leading scientist in the field. The future is quantum. Find out why.
