Have you ever wondered what exactly a quantum computer is and what impact they may have on society?

On 7 December 2022, artists, physicists, philosophers and practitioners will come together in the Goethe-Institut Irland, to shine a light on the current landscape of quantum computing and to explore the future of quantum technologies and the arts. Join us in 37 Merrion Square this December for an evening of exploratory conversations with experts from around the world. 

John Goold (School of Physics, Trinity College Dublin) and Alison Fernandes (School of Philosophy Trinity College Dublin) will examine the ABC’s of quantum computing, through the lenses of physics and philosophy.

Harun Siljak (CONNECT & School of Engineering, Trinity College Dublin) and Fehdah (Musician and Astrophysics Graduate) will discuss ‘quantum uniqueness’ in the arts and explore how and why artists might develop work with this new technology.

Ann O’Dea (Silicon Republic & Future Human) will speak to Florian Carle (Yale Quantum Institute) about what kind of art is currently being made with quantum technologies around the world and learn about artistic projects that have stemmed from Yale Quantum Institute’s artist-in-residence programme.

The conversations will be followed by a performance from Fehdah and a reception in the library of the Goethe-Institut Irland.

This event is curated by Aisling Murray and the Living in a Quantum State team. 

Recordings of the talks will be shared after the event.
