It may seem that I've just been watching football instead of doing anything physics-y recently, but that's not true! Finishing tomorrow is a conference hosted by IBM Research called "ThinkQ 2015: Challenges and Applications for Medium Size Quantum Computers," which Graeme Smith (@quantum_graeme) and myself (@nickbronn) have been live-tweeting. The conference speakers are leaders from a wide range of experimental implementations and theory, both from academia and government/industry, all speaking to the challenges and usefulness of a medium size (~ 100 logical qubit) quantum computer. Join us tomorrow for the final half day, and peruse our tweets to see the conversation that's been happening! (I'll disable my Twitter access to Facebook so that I don't lose any more friends for posting science-y stuff).
