An Open Class is to be held at 07:00 PM on thursday 30-09-2021 on Postgraduate in Quantum Engineering (Online) and Postgraduate in Quantum Engineering (Face-to-face).

Quantum information science aims at understanding how we can process and transmit information when encoded on quantum particles. It is now well-understood that new technological applications, such as more powerful computers or novel forms of cryptography, become possible thanks to quantum phenomena. The talk presents an overview of the field, by presenting its current status and the scientific and technological challenges that need to be addressed.

This open class will be held in English.
