To accomplish the extraordinary, you must seek extraordinary people. — James Lee Byars
This two day retreat brings together the top minds, thinkers and doers, in the physics of the universe both theoretical and experimental and in cross-cutting science and technology areas that impact our views and our research. The meeting fosters exchange and celebrates differences in thinking that provoke insightful discussions. We avoid standard prepared talks, and focus on exciting forefront issues spawned by new results and ideas. The summit this year follows up on POTUS2017 that was inspired by quantum information as a technology and theory framework at many scales, by results in gravitation physics, cosmology & astronomy, the evolution of the DM searches, and by paradigm breaking ideas in string theory, gravity and cosmology. POTUS2018 will press on discussion on quantum methods for learning (quantum AI), quantum fundamental breakthroughs and quantum technologies. POTUS is held under the Chatham House Rule.
