Osaka University Research Cloud Café #2 - Quantum Information Processing Using Spin and Light

2016-11-9 (Wed) 19:00 - 20:30

Recently, the amount of information that surrounds our lives has seen an explosive increase through things such as Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT). Research on quantum data based on the basic principles of quantum mechanics is being actively performed all over the world as new technology to process information both effectively and safely. But just how are quantum information and quantum computers different from the technology we have now, and what kinds of things can we do with them? In this seminar, Prof. OOIWA from the Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research, Osaka University, will give us an easy-to-understand explanation of quantum information, after which we'll get an overview of the current state and worldwide trends of basic research for the development of devices necessary for quantum information and quantum computers. We'll also hear about the latest achievements on quantum bits, which use the property of electrons called "spin," and quantum information interfaces, which connect light and this electron spin.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
