Night Talk: Quantum Nonsense
Get ready to be entertained, educated, and inspired as you learn about the amazing world of quantum physics.
As pseudo-science takes over the internet it's getting harder and harder to separate alternative facts from real science. Chris Ferrie (an actual quantum physicist!) will tackle some of the most common misconceptions and expose the quantum nonsense in this engaging and entertaining talk. Whether you're a science buff or simply looking to expand your knowledge, this talk is not to be missed. Get ready to be entertained, educated, and inspired as you learn about the amazing world of quantum physics.
Chris Ferrie is an Associate Professor at the University of Technology Sydney and the Centre for Quantum Software and Information, where he leads a multidisciplinary team of researchers in the areas of quantum learning and control. He obtained his PhD in Applied Mathematics from the Institute for Quantum Computing and University of Waterloo (Canada) in 2012. Chris’s passion for communicating science has led from teaching to writing children’s books, such as Quantum Physics for Babies, as well as a whole collection of other titles that make science accessible even for the youngest children. His latest book is decidedly not for children and is entitled Quantum Bullsh*t: How To Ruin Your Life With Advice From Quantum Physics.
