We expand this approach by developing an online-computer game, in which players assist in solving one of the high-profile technical challenges of the 21st century: the creation of a quantum computer, which will be able to outcompete all conventional computers combined at certain tasks. Specifically, the players will get a chance to participate in the search for robust gates in an architecture based on an optical tweezer manipulating individual atoms in an optical lattice. I will furthermore describe our effort to adapt the game approach to science education in high schools and higher education.
Finally, I will briefly describe recent experimental progress towards quantum control of the many-body state of ultra-cold atoms using non-destructive measurements and feedback.
