Quantumness in a classical world?
Quantum mechanics is helping us to build a new technological paradigm. Novel and exciting possibilities, such as teleportation and quantum computing, are offered by the quantum based management of information and communication. However, the quantum advantages seem to be prerogatives of only microscopic, relatively simple systems. In this talk I will argue that this is not necessarily the case, and strong quantum features should be visible even in seemingly unfavourable situations. This talk will draw the roadmap towards the observation of quantumness in an otherwise mundane, classical world.
