Discussion article for the meetup : Less Wrong Israel Meetup (Tel Aviv): Quantum Computing

WHEN: 28 November 2013 08:00:00PM (+0200)

WHERE: 7 begin ramat gan

We're going to have a meetup on Thursday, November 28th at VisionMap's offices, Gibor Sport House, 15th floor, 7 Menachem Begin st., Ramat-Gan.

Our program is:

20:00-20:15: Assembly

20:15-21:00: Main Talk

21:00-22:00: Dinner & Discussion

22:00-23:00: Rump Session (minitalks)

23:00-: End of official programming

Main Talk: Quantum Computing / Anatoly Vorobey

We're used to living in a world where things happen in order. But in reality of quantum physics, things work a little differently. This lets us do all sorts of cool things which starting with the basics of computing theory - you'll learn about in this talk.

Backup Talk: TBA

Rump Session: Each participant will give a 4-minute talk (+3 minute encore if we applaud hard enough). Giving a talk isn't mandatory, but it's highly recommended. Not confident that what you have to say is relevant to our interests? Unsure about your public speaking skills? Doesn't matter - in the rump session, anything goes. - Note, you don't have to prepare a talk to come! Speaking at the rump session is completely only if you want to.

I guess I can try to come down, though I don't remotely have a talk prepared.

Now, can someone explain why a map marker that's supposed to be in Ramat Gan appears just to the west of Tel-Aviv ha'Haganah Rail Station?

The map marker is, incorrectly, at Derech Menachem Begin st. in Tel-Aviv rather than Menachem Begin st. in Ramat Gan where it's supposed to be. Hopefully Gal can fix that.

Excellent!

Waiting to see everyone there.
