The quantum measurement problem reveals a deep mystery about the fundamental nature of our universe. While many interpretations have been presented—some more popular than others—none fully explain how the world operates on the quantum level. But how can we test these different theories? And what experiments have been done to more successfully bolster a case for one theory over another? Quantum theorists debate how best to get to the bottom of one of the biggest mysteries about the universe.
The World Science Festival’s annual salon series offers in-depth conversations with leading scientists, extending the discussion of the Festival’s premiere public programs to graduate students, postdocs, faculty and well-informed members of the general public.
This program is part of the Big Ideas Series, made possible with support from the John Templeton Foundation.
