Lecture Series presented by KPMG - Everyday Uses for Quantum Processors
Speaker(s): David Cory
Abstract: Quantum computers hold the promise to revolutionize the way we secure information, compute and understand the quantum world. Although general-purpose quantum computers appear to be a long way off, we do have good test-beds of small quantum processors. One of the most versatile quantum test-beds is n... read more

Lecture Series presented by KPMG - The Origin of the Universe and the Arrow of Time
Speaker(s): Sean Carroll
Abstract: One of the most obvious facts about the universe is that the past is different from the future. We can turn an egg into an omelet, but can't turn an omelet into an egg. Physicists have codified this difference into the Second Law of Thermodynamics: the entropy of a closed system always increases wit... read more

Lecture Series presented by KPMG - Does Reality Have a Genetic Basis?
Speaker(s): S. James Gates Jr.
Abstract: The ultimate construction, as a basis for fundamental theoretical physics is an imperfectly understood structure called "M-Theory" or "Superstring/M-Theory" (SSMT). In a quest to create a rigorous mathematical background for SSMT, new mathematical structures called "Adinkras" have been proposed as t... read more

Lecture Series presented by KPMG - The Best Way to Predict the Future is to Invent it Yourself!
Speaker(s): Peter Diamandis
Abstract: Based on the success of the Ansari X PRIZE (which stimulated the creation of billion-dollar private spaceflight industry) and more recently the launch of the $30M Google Lunar X PRIZE and the $10M Progressive Automotive X PRIZE, this talk explains how to incentivize breakthroughs. Traditional thinki... read more
