Jim talks with Jiahui Liu about quantum money. Quantum Money is a key milestone in quantum crytography -- not for the breaking of codes (e.g., Shor's algothrithm), but instead for using quantum computing to improve cryptography beyond what is possible in classical cryptography. The difficulty is, however, a fully satisfactory way to implement quantum money is not currently known. Jiahui discusses both how to show that a possible implementation doesn't work, and how she developed another scheme to implemet quantum money. She also discusses the history of quantum money and some of the things quantum crytographers can do once they have a reliable quantum money scheme.
