TITLEQuantum Peculiarities, Device-Independent Quantum Information and Other Challenges

ABSTRACTWhile quantum theory is an extremely successful physical theory of Nature, it is also a rich source of peculiarities. In this talk, I remind a few of these peculiarities and discuss some of their implications and applications. Special attention will be given to the non-locally-causal nature of quantum theory and its application to the rapidly growing field of device-independent quantum information. I will also discuss some important challenges that remain in these research areas
