1.2.2 Introducing the quantum internet

Course subject(s) Module 1. The Quantum Internet and Quantum Computers: How Will They Change the World?

The quantum internet is now in a similar stage as the classical internet in the 1960’s. In half a decade the internet gained a huge role in our daily life.

It is not a matter of science anymore: a large community has been and still is working on how we can use the internet in our daily communication.

Stephanie will give an introduction to the exciting field of quantum internet.

Main Takeaways

  • Bringing a scientific concept from universities to society requires effort from academia and industry and now we see the first footsteps being made.
  • In 2020 QuTech is aiming to have a small quantum node network, which might become the first quantum internet on earth.
  • A quantum internet enables us to send qubits from one node to another. This allows us to create entanglement between any two points.
  • Entanglement is inherently private.
