Totally off-topic, but this looks interesting (and open to
non-academics) - anyone interested?

DWave-Systems (claim to be creators of the world's first quantum
computers) are very interested in engaging with SICSA and three of their
staff (including Scientists) are going to be visiting Edinburgh
Informatics on the 11th December. There are also going to be talks by
Elham Kashefi and Simon Gay. DWave-Systems have recently been funded
with another $30M and are keen to link up with Scottish Scientists.
Their Business Development contact Colin Williams, did his PhD in Edinburgh.
The agenda is as follows:
9:30 - 10 Coffee and Welcome
10 - 12 DWAVE presentation
12 - 2 Lunch break and discussion
2 - 3 QUISCO presentation
3 - 3:30 Coffee break
3:30 - 5 discussion with other interested parties.
Please sign up using the eventbrite system so we have an accurate number
for food etc.
Many thanks, Martin
