In this Virtual colloquium session, Emily Haworth will hold a presentation titled “Quantum Dynamics”. The second quantum revolution refers to the extraordinary, innovative feat of developing new technology that actively manipulates quantum states. If realised, this in itself could already bring about social impacts, potentially through its applications or new understandings it brings. But even without any promise of what quantum tech could do… is there another revolution to be considering? How can art and design help to change how the development and adoption of technology is undertaken, such that we are guaranteed positive impacts?
Emily Haworth is a Quantum Science & Technology MSc student at the Technical University of Munich. Alongside her studies, she created ‘PushQuantum: Climate’ which aims to support quantum technology to be an overall carbon negative endeavour. Through this, she has established collaborations with Munich’s Deutsches Museum addressing the role of technology in the environment and society. She is also part of the organisational team for the Quantum Energy Initiative (QEI), bringing attention to the importance of assessing the physical resource cost of quantum technologies.
The Virtual Colloquium this semester is organized in cooperation with Goethe-Institut’s Studio Quantum. The Zoom link to join the Virtual Colloquium will be the same for all sessions: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/82954605489?pwd=VP3XBDzVogeuQtLWaXbWEFpm9ObxiQ.1Meeting-ID: 829 5460 5489Kenncode: 079532
