004: Shallow quantum circuits with David Gosset
The point of building quantum computers is that we expect them to be capable of things that classical computers aren't. But how can we prove that this is the case? In this episode we talk to David Gosset, a professor at the University of Waterloo,...

003: Quantum certified deletion with Anne Broadbent
Can you ever be sure that someone has deleted your data? Anne Broadbent (University of Ottawa) tells us about a protocol for "quantum certified deletion", where a recipient of your information can prove to you that they've deleted your information. We...

002: Quantum channel capacities with Debbie Leung
Quantum channel capacities are known to exhibit counterintuitive properties (superadditivity and superactivation), which make them hard to calculate. In this episode we talk to Debbie Leung (Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo)...

001: The origin of the Mermin-Peres magic square
The Mermin-Peres magic square is a simple game which is at the heart of many results in quantum cryptography and quantum complexity theory. In this episode, we trace the origin of the Mermin-Peres square back to two short papers by N. David Mermin and...
