Is the universe actually a giant quantum computer? According to Seth Lloyd, the answer is yes. All interactions between particles in the universe, Lloyd explains, convey not only energy but also information- in other words, particles not only collide, they compute. What is the entire universe computing, ultimately? " Its own dynamical evolution, " he says. " As the computation proceeds, reality unfolds." "Programming the Universe," a wonderfully accessible book, presents an original and compelling vision of reality, revealing our world in an entirely new light.

Seth Lloyd is Professor of Mechanical Engineering at MIT and a principal investigator at the Research Laboratory of Electronics. He is also adjunct assistant professor at the Santa Fe Institute. His seminal work in the fields of quantum computation and quantum communications has gained him a reputation as an innovator and leader in the field of quantum computing. He has written numerous articles for Nature, New Scientist, Science and Scientific American. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts
