A quantum future: the next technological revolution?

Over the years, computing has become the main field of quantum experimentation. The quantum computers of the future, capable of doing enormous calculations at high speed and of factoring large numbers, can also decipher the whole of present-day cryptography. What political, economic, and social consequences will this phenomenon have? How will the quantum revolution affect us? The ICREA research professors Aurelio Juste (IFAE-UAB), Clivia Sotomayor (ICN2-UAB), and Antonio Acín (ICFO-UPC) discuss the technology that has been developed thanks to quantum physics while also considering the point we are at now with regard to a new technological revolution.

Participants: Antonio Acín, Aurelio Juste, Clivia Sotomayor, Irene Lapuente
