Abstract: B28.00002 : Information thermodynamics meets technology
11:51 AM–12:27 PM
Information thermodynamics concerns scenarios where observers have extra knowledge beyond that of a thermal observer. Can these ideas contribute to technological performance enhancements? I will describe recent theory and experiment by myself and collaborators suggesting this is indeed possible, including the potential for quantum enhancements.
