Get ready for an extraordinary mind expanding experience!
A quantum computer isn’t just a more powerful version of the computers we use today; it’s something else entirely, based on emerging scientific understanding — and more than a bit of uncertainty. Enter the quantum wonderland with TED Fellow Shohini Ghose and learn how this technology holds the potential to transform medicine, create unbreakable encryption and even teleport information. This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.
Shohini Ghose explores the strange quantum world of atoms and photons to understand the fundamental laws of the universe and harness them for quantum computing and communication — and works to make science accessible and inclusive for people of all genders and backgrounds. Ghose grew up in India, where she dreamed of becoming an astronaut or a superhero. She moved to Miami University for her undergraduate studies, where she majored in mathematics. She received her PhD from the University of New Mexico in 2003. Her PhD thesis, “Quantum And Classical Dynamics Of Atoms In A Magneto‐optical Lattice”, looked at the interaction between atoms and lasers.
