[QWAY] Dumpster Diving: Historical Memory and Quantum Physics at Yale

Event time: 
Wednesday, April 13, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Event description: 

Did you know Badger, the dilution refrigerator which hosted the world’s first demonstration of two-qubit algorithms with a superconducting quantum processor in 2009, is here at Yale? As technology goes from Research & Development to mass production, how do we preserve the historical memory and ephemera once the innovator moves on: the researcher graduates, changes institutions, or retires, and the delocalization of the industry?
Join Florian Carle, manager at Yale Quantum Institute (YQI) and inaugural YQI Artist in Residence Martha W. Lewis in this Session to discuss the best practices in conservation, archiving, and exhibiting the history and advancements of technology. Everyone is welcome, from Artists, digital humanists, archivists, conservationists, historians to scientists, to brainstorm how one removes themselves and their biases from record keeping.
