A World Without Quantum Computers - John Conway Spirited Seminar Series
Prof. Gil Kalai
The lecture will briefly discuss my theory explaining why quantum computers are not possible. I will address the question if Google's Sycamore and other recent experiments falsify my theory, and discuss consequences of my theory to classical philosophical questions of predictability, free will, and reductionism. On the mathematical side, the connection between noise and Fourier expansion will play a role.
Professor Kalai belongs to the Einstein Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The session will take place on Monday September 27, 2021 at 4pm PKST.
