Lecture by Dr. Charles Tahan for the Stanford University Computer Systems Colloquium (EE380).
In this lecture, Dr. Charles Tahan gives a non-physics perspective on quantum information science and technology, both via some of his own scientific work, but mostly from the vantage of science and technology studies. He touches on why the new quantum revolution is for real, what "new quantum revolution" actually means, why it's more interesting than nanotechnology, and how we should prepare for it.
In this course, Stanford University gives 22 video lectures on the Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium. This course features weekly speakers on current research and developments in computer systems. Topics touch upon all aspects of computer science and engineering including logic design, computer organization and architecture, software engineering, computer applications, public policy, and the social, business, and financial implications of technology. Frequently the Colloquium provides the first public forum for discussion of new products, discoveries, or ideas. This playlist consists of seminar speakers recorded during the 2007-2008 academic year.
The original name of this course is: Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium (2007-2008).
