The second 'Oriel Talks' of Michaelmas Term will take place in the Harris Lecture Theatre on Tuesday 22nd November, and is on the theme of "Make or Break". 

In an age of ever advancing computing, how do we make sure we are keeping up? By turning to quantum computers…but how easy is that in reality? Can we believe something at will, and is something true simply if we believe it? What do we do when the things we make, start to break?!? Have no fear…the engineers are here. Three interesting questions, three great talks. Come along to find out more!
