Spacetime replication of continuous variable quantum information [IEEE Information Theory Society, Santa Clara Valley Chapter]

Topic: 
Spacetime replication of continuous variable quantum information
Abstract / Description: 

It is well known that no information can be transmitted faster than light, and it is also known that quantum information cannot be cloned or copied arbitrarily. These two "laws" place restrictions on the transmission of information through spacetime, but are there other limitations? The answer is no: the only such restrictions are (1) no-signalling (faster- than-light communication), and (2) no-cloning of quantum information. In this talk, This talk will first provide a brief introduction to some fundamentals of quantum information theory (including the no-cloning theorem and quantum error correction), and then it will show that any process that transmits information through spacetime without violating (1) or (2) is physically realizable as a so-called spacetime information replication task. In particular, this talk will describe how one can succeed at distributing information in seemingly impossible ways using quantum error correction, and showcase new, continuous variable quantum error correcting codes that can efficiently replicate information in spacetime.

Biosciences and EE Student Mixer

Topic: 
Student Mixer
Abstract / Description: 

We have a special HappEE Hour / student mixer with the Stanford Biosciences Student Association. The fare and vibe will be familiar, but there will be a bunch of new faces and it will be over on the Dean's Lawn in the Medical School, just a short walk from the EE buildings.

In case of rain, or otherwise inclement weather, the backup location will be the Packard Atrium.

Date and Time: 
Friday, April 7, 2017 - 5:00pm
Venue: 
Medical School Dean's Lawn

PhD Research Poster Session

Topic: 
PhD Research Poster Session
Abstract / Description: 

Join us for Research Poster presentations by EE PhD students.

EE students eager to share their research -- come enjoy their posters and demonstrations.

Student posters will also be judged by a group of faculty and staff. Presenters will have an opportunity to summarize their work and answer questions within a set timeframe. Judging criteria is based on 4 components: originality, content, oral presentation, and visual quality. One winner and one honorable mention will be awarded from each core research area. Winning presenters will receive a gift card and certificate. 

 

Join us afterward for GSEE (Grad Students of EE) HappEE Hour (21 and over, please).

Date and Time: 
Friday, March 10, 2017 - 4:00pm
Venue: 
Packard Atrium
