Lately the field of Quantum Information Science and related technologies have attracted vigorous world-wide interest. These technologies include quantum computers that will be able to solve efficiently classes of important problems not accessible to classical computers, a new generation of sensors with improved sensitivity, and the ‘quantum internet’, an inherently secure network for communicating and accessing remote quantum computers. I will discuss the status of these technologies, showcase exciting advances, and present highlights from my group.
