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.

EE 185: Interactive Light Sculpture Project

Topic: 
Fractal Flyer Functionality!
Abstract / Description: 

In 2019 the Stanford Electrical Engineering Department celebrated its 125th anniversary. As part of celebration, we will be designing, engineering and installing an interactive light sculpture in the 3-story glass stairwell of the Packard building, named FLIGHT. FLIGHT consists of 76 Fractal Flyers, bird-like shapes inspired by the geometry of the stairwell that move. The wings of the Fractal Flyers are dichroic acrylic, so that during the day their color shifts and changes with the angle of light. At night, they light up with patterns across their bodies and wings. The sculpture will remain in Packard for 3-5 years, allowing refinement, exploration of new engineering ideas, and new interactions.

Date and Time:

Stanford Community Hour welcomes Prof. Imani Perry
Abstract / Description: 

Dear colleagues and Stanford Community,

I'm forwarding this message at the request of Prof. Allyson Hobbs, open to anyone interested (feel free to share), and with apologies for cross-postings... Prof. Hobbs has created an online space for all at Stanford to join together as a community, featuring a wide variety of great speakers.

As we continue to grapple with these challenging times and seek spaces to discuss racial injustice in America, I am happy to announce that Professor Imani Perry (Princeton University) will be our special guest on the Stanford Community Hour on SATURDAY, JUNE 13 at 1pm PST. **Please note the change in date due to the virtual celebration of seniors on Sunday.**
