Foundations of Computing: Scott Aaronson | Polylogues

A theoretical computer scientist at the University of Texas at Austin, Scott Aaronson conducts research in quantum computing and computational complexity.

For this episode of Polylogues, former Simons Institute Journalist in Residence Siobhan Roberts sat down with Aaronson to discuss the history of computer science and his trajectory in the field — especially in quantum computing.

This video is the third installment of a three-part miniseries on the Foundations of Computing. Watch the first two episodes:
