Title:  Is Entanglement Useful?
Abstract: Entanglement—non-local quantum correlation--is the most “quantum” part of quantum mechanics.  But is it useful for anything?  For most of us, the answer is “not yet”.  I will discuss experiments at the JILA research institute in Boulder, CO and the US Army Research Laboratory in Adelphi, MD that are pushing the boundaries of creating useful entanglement in a way that will soon impact real world applications.
