Quantum experts Harry Buhrman (CWI, QuSoft and UvA) and Ronald Hanson (QuTech, TU Delft) showed a glimpse of their scientific minds at the Lowlands Pop Festival on Saturday 19 August 2017. They discussed the quantum revolution: what effects will quantum computing and quantum networks have on science and our society? 

Harry Burhman is the group leader of the Algorithms and Complexity research group at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) and director of QuSoft. The talkshow was an initiative of New Scientist magazine and VPRO / Mind of the Universe, supported by KNAW and VSNU. Lowlands was sold out.
