“Quantum physics” is often viewed in popular culture as being entirely incomprehensible. STPF fellows Eric Breckenfeld and Jonathan Trinastic speak with three physicists from government, academia and industry to discuss the phenomena studied in quantum physics and its relevance to our daily lives. One budding technology is quantum computing, an area of significant interest at IBM where users are permitted to submit code to their 5-qubit quantum computer at: https://quantumexperience.ng.bluemix.net/qstage/#/user-guide (link is external).
