Want to become a social outcast? Why not attempt to impress friends by turning conversation from "Whoa! That guttering needs a bit of work!" to post-quantum ("po-quo") physics? One of the most cited contemporary physicists, Prof. Vlatko Vedral, Professor of Quantum Information Theory, University of Oxford, will be speaking on the topic of information as a foundational building block of the universe.
'What if the fundamental entity is not energy or matter, but information? I will explore this hypothesis using evidence that suggests that the quantum
world, once thought to be limited to the tiniest scales, may reach much further – thereby challenging our concepts of particles, of time, of determinism, and of reality itself!'
