For decades, the word “quantum” has been nearly synonymous with “magic” in the popular imagination. With recent advances and breakthroughs in quantum technology, real applications of quantum computers feel closer than ever. Will quantum technologies live up to their potential? Join CIFAR Associate Fellow Dave Bacon (IonQ) and CIFAR Fellow Stephanie Simmons (Simon Fraser University) as they explore what quantum has in store for computation.
