In the final story in this year’s UCSB Reads book Exhalation: Stories by Ted Chiang, quantum computers allow people to explore divergent timelines. At UCSB, scientists are working on developing real quantum computers that do not allow for divergent timelines but will help address pressing problems such as optimizing delivery routes and strengthening password encryption.
Quantum physics defies our intuition about how the physical world is supposed to work. Are you curious about quantum physics and quantum computing? Drop by the Library on World Quantum Day and participate in fun interactive games and activities designed to build your quantum intuition.
Activities were developed by three NSF-funded projects at UCSB and will be led by graduate students working with these projects: EPiQC, Quander, and the Quantum Foundry
