We will discuss recent developments involving a new scientific interface between quantum optics, many body physics, nanoscience and quantum information science. Specific examples include the use of quantum optical techniques for manipulation of individual spins using atom-like impurities in diamond and for controlling individual optical photons using strongly interacting ultra-cold atoms. Novel applications of these techniques ranging from approaches to quantum computation at room temperature to strongly interacting photonic systems and nanoscale sensing in biology will be discussed.
