On the eve of the Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report, I will present a brief overview of how climate science has evolved since the publication of the Charney Report in 1979, and use a few examples from my recent work to show how one can use numerical models, observations and theories […]

Abstract Photons play a central role in many areas of quantum information science, either as qubit themselves or to mediate interactions between long-lived matter based qubits. Techniques for (1) high-fidelity generation, (2) precise manipulation and (3) ultra-efficient detection of quantum states of light are therefore a prerequisite for virtually all quantum technologies. A quantum photonic […]

Abstract: Current hardware and operating system abstractions were conceived at a time when we had minimal security threats, scarce compute and memory resources, and limited numbers of users. These assumptions are not true today. On one hand, attacks such as Spectre and Meltdown have shown that current hardware is plagued by vulnerabilities. On the other […]
