What exactly are quantum technologies and what impact do they have on society? What opportunities do they offer, and what ethical and ecological questions do they pose? How can civil society play a role in their regulation? Can the arts help us to better understand and communicate about them?
These are among the questions that will be explored at ‘Entangled‘, a public event at the Goethe-Institut Irland that shines a light on the current landscape of quantum computing and examines the relationship between quantum technologies and the arts.
The event forms part of ‘Living in a Quantum State’, a new initiative by the Goethe-Institut, which fosters public dialogue around the use of quantum technologies in today’s society, through the lens of art. Hosted by the Goethe-Institut in Dublin, the event is one of a series of international events taking place in cities around the world, including in San Francisco, Beijing, Berlin and London.
The Dublin event will be moderated by Co-founder and CEO of Silicon Republic and Future Human, Ann O’Dea and will take the format of three conversations between artists, physicists and philosophers:
The conversations will be followed by a musical performance from Fehdah.
The event will take place at 5pm on Wednesday, 7th December at the Goethe-Institut at 37 Merrion Square, Dublin 2. Tickets cost €6 and can be purchased via Eventbrite.
The event takes place on 7th December 2022. Further details at goethe.de/quantum
