Talk title: Hack the Multiverse!
Presented by: Dr. Suzanne Gildert
Quantum Computer Programmer (D-Wave Systems Inc.)
William Gibson famously said: “The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.” The same is true of quantum computing. This mysterious subject is often relegated to ivory tower discussions and shrouded in a language of complex mathematics. Yet there are many people out there who feel an itch to start hacking with quantum computers — a desire to program the very fabric of reality — no matter how early the adoption may seem.
This talk will be a call to arms — I’ll excite you about quantum physics – our deepest understanding of the Universe. I’ll explain why quantum computing is not as mysterious as everyone thinks. And I’ll show you how to become a quantum computer programmer in less than 10 minutes… Join me for an hour of both deep learning and fun, as I proudly stand up for those who are turning an abstract science into a powerful computational resource, and deliver the message that quantum computing is not spooky, it’s just misunderstood.
About the speaker: Dr. Suzanne Gildert is currently working at D-Wave Systems, Inc. Suzanne obtained her PhD and MSci degree from The University of Birmingham UK, focusing on the areas of experimental quantum device physics and superconductivity.
