12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Speaker: Seth Lloyd (MIT)

Technical Host: Adolfo del Campo

TOPIC: Gravity and Quantum Information

Abstract
This talk shows how general relativity can be derived from quantum limits to measurement. Starting from the physics of computation, I derive a limit to the total number of events bit flips, clock ticks, or clicks of detectors that can be contained in any volume of spacetime. I show that if each event removes a Planck scale area from the volume, then Einstein's equations hold.
