Information is the key!
Speaker(s): Gilles Brassard
Abstract: Most physicists take it for granted that the experimental violation of Bell's inequality provides evidence that it is not possible to completely describe the state of a physical system in terms of purely local information when this system is entangled with some other system. We disagree. Provided we... read more

Exact Classical Simulation of the Quantum-Mechanical GHZ Distribution
Speaker(s): Gilles Brassard
Abstract: John Bell has shown that the correlations entailed by quantum mechanics cannot be reproduced by a classical process involving non-communicating parties. But can they be simulated with the help of bounded communication? This problem has been studied for more than twenty years and it is now well under... read more

Is Information the Key?
Speaker(s): Gilles Brassard
Abstract: Consider the two great physical theories of the twentieth century: relativity and quantum mechanics. Einstein derived relativity from very simple principles. By contrast, the foundation of quantum mechanics is built on a set of rather strange, disjointed and ad hoc axioms, reflecting at best the his... read more
