>----------------------------------------


A quantum computer is a device that exploits the unintuitive laws of quantum mechanics to perform certain computations exponentially faster than any known classical method.  Although the technology is in its infancy, a moderately-sized quantum computer with a few thousand quantum bits would be able to factor large numbers quickly enough to break most modern cryptosystems.  In this talk we will explore the basic model of quantum computation using a lucid, graphical representation, with the goal of answering: just how is quantum computing different, and why is it special?  We will briefly describe how such a computer might be built and comment on the challenges and possibilities ahead.

        Presenter: Jim Garrison works as a theoretical physics researcher at UC Santa Barbara, where he is a PhD candidate in physics.  In addition to time spent as an independent software contractor, he has worked for the Software Freedom Law Center and the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute.

Future Salons are monthly educational, activist, and social events, focused on existing or emerging scientific, technological, entrepreneurial, or social change topics and projects worthy of your help and attention. We also cover critical-thinking, management, and personal change topics, and occasionally longer-term scientific and philosophical topics. Our goal is to make our rapidly changing world more fascinating, manageable, profitable, and positive-sum for all of us. We strive to be both doing-action-project oriented, and thinking-idea-prioritizing oriented. About the Future Salon Network initiated by John Smart: http://www.accelerating.org/futuresalon.html


    Special thanks to our presenter and our venue sponsor SATELLITE. Parking is available on the street or there are 3 floors of parking below us, and our elevator drops down to them, so people that park in the underground parking lot (located on marine, and costs $6 for the entire day) can get in the elevator and go straight up to the 3rd floor (the event space).
