As quantum computers transition from academic curiosities to marketable products, more journalists and communicators are grappling with the underlying science. Quantum physics has a reputation for being abstruse and technical, and it can be difficult to communicate a new discovery about the quantum world without resorting to clichés. This session will examine trends in quantum computing coverage and explore the ways that researchers, communicators and reporters view the challenge of communicating this subject with words and images.
