A panel discussion of faculty members from the Pittsburgh Quantum Institute (http://www.pqi.org) was organized during Science 2015 to learn about the new field of quantum computing.  The panel includes experts from physics, chemistry and engineering disciplines, and will be moderated by the Director of PQI.  What is a quantum computer?  How are they different from ordinary computers?  What kinds of disciplines can a quantum computer impact?  Why don’t we have quantum computers already?
