Daniel JamesAbstract:

In this talk I will present a (somewhat personalized) over-view of the past 25 years' endeavors to develop useful quantum technologies. I will touch on topics such as quantum key distribution, quantum teleportation, quantum computing and quantum metrology, describing how far we have come and the challenges that still remain.
