The next information revolution is coming. Data will no long be simple zeroes and ones, but instead will take on characteristics driven by quantum mechanics. How will this change what we can compute and communicate? In this talk, I will lead you through the key ideas in quantum information (with almost no math!) and talk about what we can do with a quantum Internet. I divide the applications of quantum communications into three categories: quantum cryptographic functions, quantum sensor networks, and distributed quantum computation. Some of these functions are drop-in replacements for existing, classical functionality, with additional, desirable characteristics. At least
one of the most exciting is an entirely new capability brought by quantum computation.

About the Speaker
Rodney Van Meter received a B.S. in engineering and applied science from the California Institute of Technology in 1986, an M.S. in computer engineering from the University of Southern California in 1991, and a Ph.D. in computer science from Keio University in 2006. His current research centers on quantum computer architecture and quantum networking. Other research interests include storage systems, networking, and post-Moore’s Law computer architecture. He is now an Associate Professor of Environment and Information Studies at Keio University’s Shonan Fujisawa Campus. Dr. Van Meter is a member of AAAS, ACM and IEEE.
