Quantum computers of the future promise to crack some of the hardest problems in computer science, physics, materials science, and more, but how close are scientists to building a working quantum computer? And what exactly will these machines be able to do?

“Quantum computers are a completely new paradigm of computing, but it is not true that they can be used to speed-up any problem,” says Fernando Brandão, Caltech’s Bren Professor of Theoretical Physics. In conversation with science writer Whitney Clavin, Brandão, who is also director of quantum applications for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Center for Quantum Computing at Caltech, will examine the hype around quantum computing and give an update on the field. Register to learn about different approaches to building quantum computers, the challenges scientists and engineers are grappling with today, and why this is an exciting time to be a quantum physicist.

This is a free event, but registration is required. The first 500 attendees can join the Zoom webinar. Others will be provided with a YouTube link.
