Quantum Social Lab: Basic Course

Billions of dollars, euros and the renminbis are currently being invested in developing quantum technology (QT) in applications such as computing, communications, and simulation. While much of the research is still in the foundational stage, it is expected that QT will be transformative for the natural and economic sciences, engineering, life sciences, and medicine. The impacts of QT on society that flow from these transformations also have revolutionary potential but are currently underexplored. To start filling this gap, the students worked in groups of 2-3 with different challenges arising from further developing these technologies.
