**What's the talk about?**

A quantum computer makes use of the quantum states of subatomic particles to store and process information. Quantum computing has the potential to solve problems faster than standard computers can do, and thus many researchers are working on developing large scale quantum computers.

Remarkably, black holes can help us understand how a quantum computer might work: black holes are believed to be the most efficient quantum computers than can exist in nature.

In this talk we will explain what black holes might teach us about quantum computing and conversely what quantum theory implies about the fundamental properties of black holes.
