Quantum computers and black holes

Dr. Machiel Blok

By using quantum systems to process information, quantum computers hold the promise of unimaginable computational advantages for specific tasks. As academia and industry are building this future quantum technology, it is natural to wonder where this excitement comes from, how far we are from a working quantum computer and what its first application will be. In this talk I will try to answer these questions and present my ongoing work to shape UC Berkeley’s quantum processor into a simulator of black hole physics.
