Join Yale Library in celebrating Bass Library’s 2023-2024 Model Research Collection, From DOS to Qiskit: Turning Entanglement into Quantum Computation. The curator will be on hand for remarks and refreshments will be served. No registration is required.

Through selected titles from the Yale Library collections, Dr. Florian Carle of the Yale Quantum Institute invites you to discover how humans have used quantum theory, and in particular its implications for processing information in novel ways. Our selections also take some playful turns into the corners of the computing technology before quantum computers.

In addition to the collection of books selected from the Yale Library for this Model Research Collection, multiple displays and events will be held during the year, showing the evolution of human computation devices, from classical computers running DOS to quantum computers running Qiskit! Come to learn more about this exciting curated collection and series of events.
