Taming the Quantum World

The dizzying power of the revolutionary quantum computers of the future promises to turn society as we know it upside down. Such computers will challenge all forms of internet security while at the same time giving us a brand new approach to encryption that is immune to surveillance. They will also be capable of generating virtual realities that mimic nature down to the tiniest detail and can contribute to solving global energy problems – and more.

This film also takes us back to the legendary tram ride during Einstein’s visit to Copenhagen on which Einstein and Bohr immediately got into a fierce argument about the mysterious quantum world. Albert Einstein refused to believe that the quantum world could be this crazy, while Bohr insisted that on the contrary, understanding quantum physics would make anyone feel dizzy.
