Abstract

The world around holds amazing properties. What is even more amazing
is that we are able to understand them, to control them, and turn them
in to technologies. From fire to electricity and magnetism, these
properties have been tamed and have transformed society. But what is
coming up?
What are the properties of nature that will be tamed in the 21st century and impact all of us? Dr. Raymond Laflamme
will describe how the quantum world behaves, share the latest
breakthroughs and some of the biggest challenges ahead in the quest to
build technologies based on quantum properties. Hear how researchers at
the forefront of science are navigating and controlling the subatomic
realm to develop new technologies that will change the ways we work,
communicate, and live.
