Consultants' Network - Quantum Information Technologies

on May 14, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Speaker Seth Cottrell, PhD
Topic Info

Monday, May 14, 2018

IEEE Consultants’ Network of San Diego

Topic: Quantum Information Technologies
Speaker: Seth Cottrell, PhD

Very broadly, new quantum information technologies fall into two categories: quantum computation and quantum communication. Quantum computation promises to bring an end to RSA encryption (the most common encryption protocol), but progress toward a scalable quantum computer has been relatively slow. Quantum communication on the other hand is presently in use around the world and provides a security fix: “quantum key distribution” (QKD). Last year China launched the Micius satellite, the first of its kind, to establish entanglement over thousands of miles and provide the backbone for large scale, long distance QKD.

This talk will cover the basics of entanglement, quantum teleportation (a communication protocol), and quantum key distribution.

Speaker Bio Seth Cottrell earned a PhD in mathematics from the Courant Institute at NYU. His research is in quantum information and teaches at Southwestern College. For ten years, Seth has talked to complete strangers about math and physics and written about it at His new book is “Do Colors Exist?: And Other Profound Physics Questions”.
