HOPE 2020 (2020): "Quantum Encryption" (Download)
Saturday, July 25, 2020: 1500. Every so often we see another headline announcing a major breakthrough in quantum computing, often accompanied by breathless warnings of the death of encryption as we know it. How real are these claims? Is encryption really doomed? How is quantum computing a threat anyway, and is there anything we can do about it?
This is a session for people who are IT literate but not physicists, let alone quantum physicists. Come along if you'd like to hear quantum computing and encryption explained by someone who is IT literate, but not a physicist, let alone a quantum physicist!
