A Quantum State of Mind

December 08, 2016

A Quantum State of Mind
Are physicists on a path to upend some of the time-tested fundamental theories of physics? This podcast explores the interplay between quantum theory and general relativity, and how these phenomena may be exploited, from black holes to quantum computing.

Featuring Daniel Harlow (Harvard University Center for the Fundamental Laws of Nature), Scott Aaronson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and Brian Swingle (Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics), with moderation from George Musser (Spooky Action at a Distance), this podcast features audio from the final event in our series, The Physics of Everything.
