Uncommon sense and the Quantum: A tale of Teleportation, Cats and Quantum Computing One of the biggest revolution in the twentieth century was the discovery that we are made up of atoms, and that the properties of these tiny objects are very different compared to those of day to day objects like baseballs and benches. Understanding these properties requires overhauling our common sense which is based on the large scale world. The breakthroughs in figuring out these properties led to the semiconductor revolution in the later half of last century, eventually leading to computers, iPhones and the information age.

Yet some properties at this atomic scale are too strange to fully make sense. For example about a decade ago, a lab in Austria was able to successfully transfer the quantum state of a photon from one point to another without the photon actually going across. It was the analog of the Star Trek fame teleportation. The property of the quantum world that makes this possible baffled even Einstein, whose attempts to point out its absurdity in fact became a foundation of a new revolution in science-the quantum information revolution. The aim of this talk is to communicate some of these exciting ideas and successes which have led to science fiction turning into observable reality.
