As a part of the YuQC speaker series, Prof. Ray Laflamme will join us this Thursday April 8th at 7pm for a fireside chat. This will be an incredibly unique opportunity for you to ask one of the biggest names in quantum anything you’d like! Professor Raymond Laflamme is the founder of the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo and a Canada Research Chair in Quantum Computing. Prof. Laflamme began his career working with Stephen Hawking on questions in quantum gravity and cosmology, but his interests have moved to quantum information science and technology. As a pioneering scientist in quantum information theory. Prof. Laflamme laid down the mathematical framework for quantum error-correcting codes, which has since grown into the incredibly vibrant field we know today.
