Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
Is information, not matter or energy, the real building blocks of the universe? Is the cosmos actually a quantum computer and reality just some form of information processing? Are determinism and randomness actually opposite extremes when defining reality? How does a quantum computer work? These are just some of the complex and thought-provoking topics we will wrestle with tonight when Inquiry talks with VLATKO VEDRAL, Professor of Quantum Information Science at Oxford University and we go where no other interview has gone before: the mechanics of the cosmos and reality. Nothing less. Professor Vedral discusses his latest book DECODING REALITY: THE UNIVERSE AS QUANTUM INFORMATION. Be sure to tune in tonight to finally understand how something can come from nothing.
