Speaking at the conference

October 11, 5:10 PM - 5:30 PM

Can we make quantum technology work?

"Quantum science is ready for engineering,” says Leo Kouwenhoven. In this illuminating talk, Leo explains quantum entanglement -- the property that shows how particles can affect each other, even if they're on opposite ends of the universe -- and demonstrates how we will manipulate it to revolutionize the way our computers work.
