Canada’s prime minister schools reporter on quantum computing

by John_A

Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, paid a visit to the Perimeter for Theoretical Physicals in Waterloo earlier today. There, he encountered a sassy reporter who seemingly didn’t expect him to know much about quantum computing. But, as it turns out, Trudeau is well-versed on the topic, so he took the opportunity to break it down for everyone the event.

This happened after the journalist started a question by saying, “I was going to ask you to explain quantum computing, but…,” followed by light chuckles. In response, Trudeau said, “Very simple: normal computers work by…,” which caused the crowd to laugh and briefly interrupt him. The Canadian PM then resumed and gave the Cliff’s Notes version of quantum computing — which was more than that reporter thought he’d know.

Mr. Trudeau, we salute you.
