Abstract:

Measured by the accuracy of its predictions and the scope of its applications, quantum mechanics is arguably the most successful theory in science, yet its deeper meaning remains controversial almost a century after its birth. QBism, a new interpretation of the old theory, provides a way out of many of its paradoxes and puzzles. QBism refutes Einstein’s objection to what he called the “spooky” nature of the conventional interpretation, and offers profound implications for how we understand and interact with the world. The non-mathematical lecture is addressed to the general public. All are welcome!
