Share Gibbons Lecture Series- Quantum Computing

Event Details

The Gibbons Lectures is an annual series of talks run by the School of Computer Science in association with IT Professionals New Zealand (formerly the New Zealand Computer Society) and Auckland ICT Graduate School.

The goal of each lecture is to describe detailed developments in a particular research area to a general but technical audience - from Computer Science students at all levels, to IT practitioners in other departments and outside the University.  

In 2019 we discuss what is quantum computing, what is the promise and what are the challenges?

Quantum computers are extremely complex machines that challenge almost everything we know about computing. Given their complexity, they are difficult to understand which, in turn, makes it difficult for us to understand their limits.

It is said they can crack all modern security algorithms and do immediate pattern recognition. If this is the case, what are the implications for not only computing but also wider society?

Quantum computing provides us with the opportunity to build new algorithms, and to rethink a lot of what has gone before.

Come along and hear the experts delve into this fascinating topic.
