Peering into the Weird World of Quantum Mechanics with Crazy Cold Electrical Circuits

What does electricity on a few pieces of cold metal have to do with quantum mechanics?

What is a superconducting qubit and what is it good for?

Why would anyone need a refrigerator that costs more than a Lamborghini?

How cold could a super-fridge get a can of Coors?

And what’s all the hype over quantum computers anyway?

I will discuss these questions while you eat free pizza at this weeks CU-Prime talk!
