Physics - IQUIST Seminar

NOTE TIME CHANGE.

Abstract: The vision of a Quantum Internet is to provide fundamentally new internet technology by ultimately enabling quantum communication between any two points on earth. Such a Quantum Internet would – in synergy with the ‘classical’ internet that we have today - connect quantum processors in order to achieve new capabilities that are provably impossible using classical communication.

 

In this talk we will start with an overview about quantum communication, including what applications we already know, and what is the state of the art. We will then discuss a number of computer science challenges in moving from these early state physics experiments to a scalable quantum network system, and present recent results on a software and network stack for a network of quantum processors.
