One quantum bit of information is known as a qubit (pronounced Q-bit). The ability of quantum particles to exist in many different states at once means a single quantum object can represent multiple qubits at once, opening up the possibility of extremely fast information processing.
The Quantum Shorts films will be showing on big screens around the world, in events organised by the festival's scientific partners. This page provides a synopsis of confirmed screenings - please visit the linked event pages for more details and registration information.
