The universe is a quantum computer.” - Seth Lloyd Quantum computing is a budding field that has been receiving a lot of attention recently due its immense potential for solving complex, previously unsolvable problems at high speeds. At the quantum level, objects act differently: quantum objects can teleport, entangle, or occupy different spaces at the same time. Host Keerthi starts the program discussing qubits. These qubits can exist in multiple states at the same time, thanks to a phenomenon called superposition. She then interviews teen Adelina Chau, an active researcher in quantum machine learning for drug discovery with several published works, Adelina is excited to discuss what the field is all about, where its potential and applications lie, and what her work has been about. By sharing her experience in learning and researching quantum computing, she hopes to inspire other teenagers to explore this fascinating, growing field. In our final segment, Rory, who challenges us to consider the moral and ethical implications of technology, as well as the effects of technology upon our national security in the United States. One of the biggest concerns is that quantum computing can render all of our current cybersecurity and encryption useless.
