Forget the incredible feminist talk or the charming smile. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has proven he is more than a pretty face.
Trudeau was addressing a press conference at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario on Friday when he impressed all those present with his understanding of quantum computing.
A journalist asked him a sarcastic question about quantum computing, implying Trudeau would be unable to answer it. The response was more than he bargained for.
"Very simply," he said to laughter and applause. "Normal computers work, either there's power going through a wire, or not. It's 1, or a 0, they're binary systems. What quantum states allow for is much more complex information to be encoded into a single bit."
After receiving applause and a standing ovation from the audience, Trudeau added, “Don’t get me going on this or we’ll be here all day. Trust me.”
