Webinar: Harnessing Diamonds for Quantum Technologies

On Tuesday, January 14th, alumni across the United States heard Hebrew University’s Professor Nir Bar-Gil discuss quantum physics and its potential impact on our everyday lives during Torch Talks.

Following an introduction by Hebrew University alumnus, Dr. Shmulik Eisenmann, Senior Manager of Applied Science for Amazon Prime Air, Professor Bar-Gill explained what quantum is, highlighted the difference between classical digital computers (the computers we use today) and quantum computers (computers that will enable us to execute computational tasks exponentially faster), the future of quantum technology in medical diagnostics, and his research in the field. Dr. Bar-Gill’s informative presentation concluded with a Q & A session.
