Talk: Decoding Reality: The Universe as Quantum Information
  • The House, University of Plymouth

Save event

University of Oxford physicist Vlatko Vedral introduces the mesmerising world of quantum physics. A better understanding of the atomic world affords the development of new technologies. 

Today’s digital computers process information encoded using binary digits. However, quantum processors do so using quantum bits. 

A binary bit can be in only one of two states, 0 or 1, but a quantum bit can be in both states at the same time. Quantum computing technology is opening exciting new avenues for creativity, including music.

Contemporary Music Festival 2019

Friday 22 – Sunday 24 February 2019

The theme of the 2019 festival, Multiverse proposes a weekend of musical interpretations of the quantum world. 

This annual festival is in partnership with Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) and is now in its 14th year. It has developed a national reputation for combining artistic creativity with scientific development, opening up new research opportunities and musical avenues that would not normally have been explored.

This year we will be welcoming the BBC Singers, David J. Peterson the creator of the Dothraki language spoken in the TV series Game of Thrones and many more to the festival.
