O.o Kwiat's in theregister

My physics professor was quoted in theregister. O.o




"It seems absolutely bizarre that counterfactual computation – using information that is counter to what must have actually happened – could find an answer without running the entire quantum computer," said Paul Kwiat, a John Bardeen Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Physics at Illinois. "But the nature of quantum interrogation makes this amazing feat possible."

I'm going to go back to being surprised now. I knew he was famous, but actually seeing him being quoted just randomly somewhere is.. interesting.
