Irfan Siddiqi

Quantum Computing: Harnessing the Unseen Special Guest Speaker Irfan Siddiqi – UC Berkeley – Professor of Physics Quantum mechanics describes the physical world around us with exquisite precision, with no known violations of the theory. Ironically, this precision comes with some additional baggage: the theory permits the existence of a host of complex, delicate entangled states of the physical world, many of which have yet to be produced or observed. The debate of whether their...
