Bold questions and brilliant minds converge at CIFAR’s Virtual Talks.

Free, and open to the public, join us as we bring high-impact research from CIFAR’s fellows, chairs, scholars and advisors to the forefront.

How does your information stay secure? What makes a “good” quantum algorithm?

Researchers are harnessing the power of quantum computing – by making certain types of classically intractable problems solvable and to develop unprecedented encryption technology to ensure an unhackable future.

In collaboration with the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), join us for a discussion at the interface of quantum computing, cryptography and cybersecurity. Hear from CIFAR Fellow, David Gosset (University of Waterloo), of our Quantum Information Science program, and CNRS researcher, Eleni Diamanti (Vice Director, Paris Centre for Quantum Computing).


David GossetDavid Gosset is a quantum computer scientist who is interested in quantum algorithms and complexity theory. He has worked on theoretical questions relevant to small quantum computers, including understanding the computational power of constant-depth quantum circuits and the limits of classical simulation algorithms.




Eleni Diamanti is an engineer and researcher at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). Diamanti’s research focuses on experimental quantum cryptography and the development of photonics sources for quantum networks.
