  • Harry Buhrman gives serie of online lectures on quantum computers at UvNL

    (Dutch only)
    Elke werkdag zet de Universiteit van Nederland we een nieuw, gratis college online. Afgelopen week was het de beurt aan prof. dr. Harry Buhrman van Universiteit van Amsterdam die college gaf over Kwantumcomputers.

    Het eerste college is getiteld "Waarom is een computer soms zo traag?":
    "Computers kunnen alles. ERROR! Niet dus. Prof. dr. Harry Buhrman, computerwetenschapper aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam en onderzoeker aan het Centrum van Wiskunde & Informatica, legt uit dat er nog steeds fundamentele wiskundige problemen zijn waar onze huidige computers nog niet tegen kunnen opboksen."
