From Quantum Foundations to Quantum Communications and Back (JM2A.1)
Presenter: Nicolas Gisin, Universite de Geneve

Quantum information science emerged from studies on the foundations of quantum physics. The talk will illustrate this, starting from Bell inequalities all the way to commercial Quantum Key Distribution and Quantum Random Number Generator chips. However, the story does not stop here. Quantum information science, in turn, feeds back into the foundations, asking questions like, e.g., “how does non-locality manifest in quantum networks”.

Silicon Photonic Quantum Computing (JM2A.2)
Presenter: Jeremy O'Brien, University of Bristol

PsiQuantum’s goal is to build the world’s first useful quantum computer using silicon photonic chips to process quantum information with single photons. A linear optical approach to quantum computing offers highly coherent qubits, high fidelity single qubit gates, and probabilistic entangling operations that can be implemented using well-known quantum optical methods.

Optical Communications: Innovations and Applications Abound (JM2A.3)
Presenter: Alan Eli Willner, University of Southern California

Optical fiber is a key enabler of high-capacity and long-distance communications. However, many applications of optical communications beyond conventional fiber systems are emerging that harness photonic technologies, especially using photonic-integrated-circuits.
