The quantum laws governing atoms and other tiny objects seem
to defy common sense, and information encoded in quantum systems has
weird properties that baffle our feeble human minds. John Preskill will
explain why he loves quantum entanglement, the elusive feature making
quantum information fundamentally different from information in the
macroscopic world. By exploiting quantum entanglement, quantum computers
should be able to solve otherwise intractable problems, with
far-reaching applications to cryptology, materials, and fundamental
physical science. Preskill is less weird than a quantum computer, and
easier to understand.
