Quantum computers and quantum networks (including quantum satellites!) are all the rage in the news these days. Are you curious how they work, and how they are built? Come try using a quantum computer yourself!
Quantum information processing (QIP) is a fast-growing, interdisciplinary field spanning both classical computer science and quantum physics. QIP is addressing fundamental questions about computability, and the technologies being developed in QIP-related research will have a powerful impact on classical computing as the evolution of IT dictated by Moore's Law brings us to the level of building computers out of individual atoms. Over the coming decades, the principles of QIP will be critical to understanding and developing information technologies. Thus, studying QIP is valuable even for students who are not planning research careers in the field.
Through the Keio Quantum Computing Center, we will be using IBM's best quantum computers. This opportunity is unique to SFC -- very few universities anywhere in the world have access to these machines. Come join us so you can brag to your friends!
