“Very simply, normal computers work by…” Trudeau began to respond, to laughter and applause from the audience. “No, no, no,” he said, “Don’t interrupt me. When you walk out of here you will know more, well, no, some of you will know far less about quantum computing.”
Then he launched into an actual explanation. Watch the video above.
