Quantum Communications. What? How? When?

Date and Time

07 June 2018 - 18:30-21:00


Coventry, United Kingdom - icon_popup  (See map)


Jointly organised by the UK - W.Mids:Coventry&Warks and UK - W.Mids:Coventry&Warks local networks.

About this event

Speaker: Prof. Tim Spiller, Professor of Quantum Information Technologies. University of York

Leading the group of scientists leading a new £24m hub to explore how quantum physics can be used to develop secure communications.

York’s Department of Computer Science, with colleagues in Germany and Japan, succeeded in generating nine-party quantum entanglement for the first time.

This advance will make quantum cryptography more likely. It is likely that ordinary people will be using quantum cryptography long before they use a quantum computer. Quantum communication, such as this, uses much less infrastructure. It will boost security for everybody, but banks will be one of the first users because of the added protection it will provide for financial transactions.

Robotic systems are perhaps at their most valuable when carrying out tasks that would otherwise put humans in danger. In some cases they give us visibility or enable operations in environments so extreme humans could not even wilfully venture - space, nuclear and deep subsea.
