I went to a talk given by Daniel Harlow at Stanford last Thursday (2016 Oct) on Emergent Locality and Gravity & Quantum Error Correction. He started from summarizing the existing attempts to solve the short distance quantum gravity problem including string theory and the attempt to quantize the metric as a local field. 147 more words

About this course
Already know something about quantum mechanics, quantum bits and quantum logic gates, but want to design new quantum algorithms, and explore multi-party quantum protocols?
Spinning black holes are capable of complex quantum information processes encoded in the X-ray photons emitted by the accretion disk.

If you are a fan of police procedure series such as CSI, Law and Order, and others you are probably very aware of the importance of our fingerprints. 600 more words
Students at my college asked every Tuesday. They gathered in a white, windowed room near the center of campus. “We serve,” read advertisements, “soup, bread, and food for thought.” One professor or visitor would discuss human rights, family, religion, or another pepper in the chili of life. 1,029 more words
NUSOD 2016 Preview: Modelling of Single Photon Detection using Superconducting Nanowires Integrated in a Photonic Chip Cavity
In the last couple of decades, photonic quantum computing has become a leading contender as a platform for quantum information processing . Recently, CMOS-fabrication technology has been used for quantum optics applications using compact silicon-on-insulator (SOI) photonic circuits. 542 more words
