ABSTRACT

Digital information technology is built on two pillars; mathematics and information theory for operating systems and software, and quantum physics for hardware. Now quantum physics plays important roles both for operating systems/software and hardware in quantum information science. Quantum computers can solve some problems much more efficiently than digital computers, and quantum cryptography promises absolutely secure communications. Some of the principles of quantum computing, quantum cryptography, and quantum teleportation with quantum entanglement will be explained in this talk.
