Rodney Van Meter
Rodney Van Meter received a B.S. in engineering and applied science from the California Institute of Technology in 1986, an M.S. in computer engineering from the University of Southern California in 1991, and a Ph.D. in computer science from Keio University in 2006. His current research centers on quantum computer architecture and quantum networking. Other research interests include storage systems, networking, and post-Moore's Law computer architecture. He is now an Associate Professor of Environment and Information Studies at Keio University's Shonan Fujisawa Campus. Dr. Van Meter is a member of AAAS, ACM and IEEE. He is the author of the book Quantum Networking(Wiley-iSTE, 2014).
The Quantum Internet
The Quantum Internet will transform how we communicate, compute and measure our universe. The Quantum Internet will create quantum entanglement, which Einstein called "spukhafte Fernwirkung", often translated as "spooky action at a distance". Using that entanglement, we can execute cryptographic functions that strengthen the security of classical communications, measure physical phenomena more precisely than purely classical systems, and ultimately couple quantum computers together to extend the size of problems they can solve. But how can we build such a network? In this talk I will describe progress toward this goal.
