There will be another FREE physics lecture, “Quantum Computing,” given by Professor Edward Farhi, MIT, at 6:30 PM Thursday, July 25th in Paepcke Auditorium, behind the music tent.
Quantum computers work in a fundamentally different way from classical computers; their logic is based on quantum law. When a large quantum computer is built, it will be able to solve certain problems faster than any conventionally designed computer. Professor Farhi will describe the challenges to building a quantum computer, the approaches that his group and others are taking to designing quantum algorithms, and how quantum computers will someday impact our lives.
