Professor Simon Benjamin is giving a talk at this year's New Scientist Live on September 30 at ExCel London.

From the ultimate computer to sensors that can see through walls, quantum technologies have the potential to radically change our lives.

The mind-bending laws of quantum physics aren’t just interesting on paper. In the right hands, they can be turned into technologies previously thought impossible.

Companies the world over, from titans like Google and Microsoft to plucky start-ups, are all racing to create the first useful quantum computers.

And other applications aren’t far behind, from sensors that can see through solid objects, to communication channels protected from hackers by the laws of physics itself. We could be on the verge of a new quantum-powered technology revolution.
