This Quantum Computing for High Energy Physics workshop may be interesting to some of you. There will be a live webcast of the event if any of you wish to follow it in real time.

Thanks for the reminder Laurence.

I got the email from Cern last month and filled the form for Nov 4th and 5th
And now I see they will have the webcast https://webcast.web.cern.ch/event/i719844
I think they send another alert before it starts too (and I just checked and I see they sent me one an hour ago) I usually am not up this early (7am)....must be something to do with LHC-dev

Looks like the coffee and lunch on the mezzanine will have to be at home for me

I am taking a course on Quantum Computing by the Delft Technical University. I have already taken the first part of this course, but could not get the 60% average necessary to get a diploma. I had taken a course by Keio University in Japan and gotten their diploma. Both Universities are cited in Nature Briefing as pioneers in Quantum Computing.

I finished the course with a 62% average on tests. This mean I can ask for a diploma (and pay for it).

Well done Tullio! By the way, how much does the diploma cost?

I'm taking a course in sketching/drawing at our local university. Soon I'll be able to sketch a quantum computer if I can find a model.

Only 50 USD, 44 euros. But I have problem sending them a webcam image as a proof of my identity. They say it is blurred but the only Webcam I have is on a HP laptop.

I have already three diplomas, one by the Edinburgh University on the Higgs boson, one on gravitational waves by Paris Diderot University which was chaired by the late Pierre Binetruy and one by Keio University on quantum computers. But they did not ask for any webcam image.

Tell them it's blurry due to quantum indeterminacy (:-))...

I covered most of it, being also busy with a computer upgrade. It was very interesting and somehow confusing, due to different approaches. The only constant was the use of the Harmonic Oscillator, which was the subject of my Thesis in 1967. Happy days!

Erwin Schrödinger, Werner Heisenberg, Max Born came into Bloch sphere and all at the same time said "Ben put that cat back in the entanglement box or it may or may not die"

Now this was 7 years before I was born so I only heard Ben saying that at Cern and we don't feed cats hydrocyanic poison or gunpowder anymore.

Btw who left their black jacket with car keys in the pocket at the auditorium after the workshop?

Also an article on "Nature Briefings" says that quantum computing could undermine blockchain, which is used by cryptocurrencies. It seems that Bitcoin is falling vertically.
