Speaker Introduction

Peter Williston Shor is an American professor of applied mathematics and computer science at MIT. He is a founder of quantum computation.  He designed an quantum algorithm factoring large numbers, well known as Shor’s algorithm, which is exponentially faster than best known algorithms running on classical computers theoretically. He constructed the the first quantum error-correcting code showing the possibility of fault-tolerant quantum computation. He was awarded many international prizes, including Nevanlinna PrizeGödel Prize  Dirac MedalMicius Quantum Prize.
