Seminar: Stefano Pironio “Device-independent quantum random number generation” (Nov 12, 2019)

Nov 12, 2019 – 12.30 – room P.2NO8.08

Speaker: Stefano Pironio (ULB)

Title: “Device-independent quantum random number generation”
Short abstract: “By exploiting a feature of quantum theory known as nonlocality, it is possible to design a new kind of quantum random number generator (QRNG) that is qualitatively different from all existing random number generators in that the production of randomness can be certified independently of any assumption about the internal working of the device. This feature is known as “device-independence”. I will explain the basic principles underlying device-independent QRNGs and the current status of their experimental implementation.”
