    There is a shift coming in the very nature of computing which is
    being led by the likes of quantum physicist Michelle Simmons.
    Michelle wants you to put the binary world of ones and zeros on the
    shelf for a moment, as she introduces you to the idea of computing
    with atoms. Michelle has always wanted to undertake the hardest
    research in the hardest subject quantum physics. Her eccentric
    schooling, coupled with the sudden death of her PhD supervisor means
    she has spent most of her career teaching herself. Michelle is the
    Director of Australias Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation
    and Communication Technology. This year, she and her team announced
    they had made the first ever single atom transistor. They now sit
    on the threshold of delivering the first ever quantum computer to
    the world. TEDxSydney 2012 took place on Saturday 26 May 2012 at
    Carriageworks. Tens of thousands of people enjoyed the day 800 in
    the theatre, over 1,000 via big screen simulcast in The Forum, many
    thousands online via YouTube and ABC Big Ideas ... and up to 80,000
    tuning in to ABC Radio National.About TEDx, x independently
    organised eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a
    program of local, self-organized events that bring people together
    to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and
    live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a
    small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx,
    where x independently organized TED event. The TED Conference
    provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx
    events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and
    regulations.)
