Quantum Computing for the Curious
A modern-day ‘space-race’ is unfolding to build the world’s first quantum computer – a device that leverages delicate quantum phenomena to offer computing power far beyond what could ever be achieved with a conventional computer. As exciting as it is to be in the midst of a second computing revolution, quantum computing can be hard to get to grips with. In this talk, Nicholas Harrigan will explain how quantum computers can be so powerful, what they’ll be able to do, what they might look like, and why you should care. No PhD required!

Nicholas Harrigan obtained his PhD in Quantum Computing from Imperial College and has since gone on to become an award-winning science-communicator. His most recent work has been with the Center for Quantum Photonics at Bristol University, where he continues to passionately communicate developments in quantum computing.

Café Scientifique
Café Scientifique is a place where anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. The Café provides a forum for debating science issues outside a traditional academic context. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable — all spoken in plain English. There is no admission charge to attend our events. Building on its great success outside the United States, Café Scientifique Silicon Valley is the first such Café on the West Coast. We meet monthly to discuss a variety of science topics.
