Public Lecture: The Power of Quantum Computing
April 19 @ 17:00 - 19:00
Frank Leymann, first Kurt Gödel Visiting Professor at TU Wien Informatics, will talk about the potential of quantum computers.
The Power of Quantum Computing—Frank Leymann (University of Stuttgart)
Quantum computing is perceived to have a profound impact on computing and society in general. In this talk, Frank Leymann presents the underpinnings of quantum computing. The notion of quantum bits and phenomena like quantum parallelism and entanglement—which are considered to be the sources of the power of quantum computers—are explained.
The way how quantum computers are programmed, which is very different from programming classical computers, is introduced. The potentials of quantum computers are exemplified by sketching how factorization is done exponentially faster, impacting today’s security infrastructure. Finally, the limits of currently available quantum computers are discussed.
