Notice Only: The Need for Certifiable Quantum Encryption and How to Solve it


**** This is Cross-Posting for Quantum Group Meeting. ****

Hey Leaguers, this is high-test presentation on Quantum Encryption. Follow the link below ... register at the Quantum Group (free).


Speaker: Dr. Mark Jackson, Cambridge Quantum Computing

Abstract: All forms of encryption require a seed key. It is essential that these be unknown by an adversary and not predictable, yet until now there has been no means of efficiently producing such certifiably random keys. I will explain how one may use quantum entanglement and superposition to produce these certifiably random keys, and they can be used for encryption algorithms and quantum communication. I welcome any questions on the underlying science, differences between other forms of (pseudo)random key generation, and other applications including QKD.

Bio: Dr. Mark Jackson is the Scientific Lead at Cambridge Quantum Computing. He received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Columbia University. He then spent 10 years researching superstring theory and cosmology, co-authoring almost 40 technical articles. To promote the public understanding of science, he founded the science crowdfunding platform Fiat Physica and non-profit Science Partnership Fund. He is Adjunct Faculty at Singularity University and a Director of the BoldlyGo Institute and Astronomers Without Borders.
