 PA3 INVITES YOU TO “SECOND TUESDAYS”

A PRINCETON PROPELLER EVENT  

AT QUADRANGLE CLUB

FOR ENTREPRENEURS,

NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS

Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres

33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ

6 P, TUESDAY, September 10th, 2019

Speaker:  Andrew Houck

Professor, Electrical Engineering

“Decoding the Realm(s) of Quantum Computing:
Tilting at Tackling the Computationally Infeasible”

Quantum Computing is poised to revolutionize myriad fields: cryptography, chemistry, medicine, optimization and machine learning. In contrast to familiar transistors, with a state 0 or 1, the quantum analog of a transistor or bit of information, aka a qubit, can be in a “superposition” of 0 and 1 simultaneously (e.g., 0 + 1, 0 - 1); and multiple qubits can be entangled, i.e., their states depend on each other. These two principles, superposition and entanglement, could enable powerful new algorithms to solve problems far beyond the capacity of today’s digital computing. Like the aviation term, “holding patterns,” maneuvers designed to delay something already in flight, while keeping it within a specified distance --- Quantum Computing may in the next decade bring such exciting new achievements as: factoring large numbers; allowing for RSA decryption; calculating binding energies of complex molecules; and solving large-scale brute-force problems. Andrew Houck, BSE Princeton 2000, PhD Harvard 2005, will introduce us to this strange new world and describe how it’s likely to transform ours.

PA3 Summer Saturdays of Service for TDI Connect

9:30am to 3pm on Saturdays – June 22, 29; July 6, 13, 20, 27 – as well as some times during the working week.

TDI Connect (formerly Trenton Digital Initiative) provides refurbished and reprogrammed computers to Trenton Second Graders who are reading below grade level. TDI loads each used computer with educational software that helps the kids learn to read better. Seventy percent of Trenton Second Graders read below grade level! So there is quite a demand for these computers.

Mercer County College has given TDI 700 desktops and laptops this summer, and TDI needs volunteers to help with a variety of tasks:

  • Carrying out detailed inventory of each of the 25 palettes of donated machines and equipment.
  • Installing hard drives into laptops and desktops.
  • Installing the Ubuntu operating system and other open source software - a fully documented, step-by-step, easy process.
  • Preparing the machines for actual delivery (putting together machines, cables, monitors, keyboards, mice, etc.).

Volunteer sessions will take place at TDI's location: Mill One, Suite A110, 1 North Johnston Ave, Hamilton, NJ (which long-ago PA3 volunteers might have a hard time recognizing; remember this?)

Minimal computer experience required – TDI can train you! They have an easy protocol for programming the computers. It’s fun!

You are not obligated to stay the whole 9:30 AM - 3:30 PM interval, but please give at least 3 hours of your time in order to take into account the training TDI gives.

If you want to be part of a group and need a ride or are willing to drive others from campus to Mill One and back, please coordinate with Noemi de la Puente (*86 S*89), PA3 Community Service co-chair, who is rounding up volunteers from the Pace Center, and the Grad College, as well as PA3. Noemi’s email: NoemiDLP@yahoo.com
Or
You can sign up individually by contacting Denise Daniels (TDI) at volunteer@TDIconnect.org

This is a great way to spend a Saturday in service to the community!
