Charles Bennett – A Founder of Quantum Information Theory

Charles Bennett is a pioneer in the field of quantum information theory at IBM Research and an IBM Fellow. His work and breakthroughs have shaped our understanding of the relationship between physics and information processing, and contributed many of the basic building blocks that guide experimental work to build a universal quantum computer.

A universal quantum computer can be programmed to perform any computing task and will be exponentially faster than classical computers for a number of important applications for science and business.

Towards this goal, IBM is introducing a cloud-enabled quantum computing platform called the IBM Quantum Experience to let researchers, the scientific community and the public, learn about, and experiment with, a quantum computer to help discover new applications for this technology.

  1. good video editing 🙂 made it more enjoyable

    Please explain next what hinders you to go to the next step fast with watson computing power?
    Is it that that you show us quantum computer videos?


    Thanks, IBM to try your new quantum computing project online (with tutorials), making it available for free to anyone interested in playing with it. A great opportunity for researchers and scientist and other academics as well. As a Physicist and Crypto Analyst is another tool of the trade to develop and give a try to new quantum algorithms for the next security platforms to come. Thanks again.

  3. I like, in particular, the first part about entanglement & dreams.

    It is true that "it's not a complicated idea but it's an idea that nobody would ever think of." — "That a thing can be in a definite state, even though its parts were not."

    And permutations, one-to-one-ness: that it might be inevitable that, by giving a thing or thought away, you lose or forget it.
