John Preskill: Quantum Computing and the Entanglement Frontier  (Academic)

FRIB invites the community to a public talk on quantum computing and the entanglement frontier at the laboratory on July 27.

The research talk features John Preskill, Richard P. Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology and director of the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter at Caltech. It will begin at 8 p.m. in Room 1300 FRIB Laboratory, 640 South Shaw Lane, on Michigan State University's campus.

The quantum laws governing atoms and other tiny objects seem to defy common sense, and information encoded in quantum systems has weird properties that baffle our feeble human minds. John Preskill will explain why he loves quantum entanglement, the elusive feature making quantum information fundamentally different from information in the macroscopic world.

All Advanced Studies Gateway events are free and open to the public.

Parking is available at the Shaw Lane Parking Ramp and at the Wharton Center Parking Ramp.
