I’m giving a VIRTUAL seminar in Teleplace this Saturday…
I’m going to entitle the talk:
‘Quantum Computing: Separating Hope from Hype’
Saturday 4th September, 10am PST
“The talk will explain why quantum computers are useful, and also dispel some of the myths about what they can and cannot do. It will address some of the practical ways in which we can build quantum computers and give realistic timescales for how far away commercially useful systems might be.”
Here’s Giulio’s advertisement for the talk:
GIULIO’S BLOGPOST about quantum computing seminar which is much more explanatory than the briefly thrown together blogpost you are being subjected to here.
Anyone wishing to watch the talk can obtain a Teleplace login by e-mailing Giulio Prisco (who can be contacted via the link above). Teleplace is a piece of software that is simple to download and quick to install on your computer and has an interface a bit like Second life. Now is a great time to get an account, as there will be many more interesting lectures and events hosted via this software as the community grows. Note the time – 10am PST Saturday morning (as in West Coast U.S. time zone, California, Vancouver, etc.)
The seminar is also listed as a Facebook Event if you would like to register interest that way!
