Quantum physics describes the realm of the very small with exquisite accuracy. However, quantum experiments can give such strange results that physicists often need to assume disparate "interpretations" of quantum physics in order to make sense of what they observe.
Amid this quantum uncertainty, it’s become fashionable for the names of everyday products and services to include the word "quantum." When is this valid, and when is "quantum" just a nonsense buzzword? From "quantum computing" to "quantum biology" to "quantum jumping", this presentation will put you in a super-position to tell the difference.
