"Quantum computers: The future of digital information processing?"
The "Digital Revolution" that transformed our lives and our economy is based on the ubiquity of information-processing devices whose processing power increased exponentially, following Moore's law. As this trend is approaching fundamental physical limits, new directions are explored for even more powerful computational devices based on quantum mechanical systems. Such devices can solve problems that are out of reach for conventional computers. This seminar will highlight some of the potential of quantum computers, as well as the difficulties that must be overcome on the way to reliable quantum computers.
