I will discuss the implication of non-equilibrium quantum thermodynamics for logical irreversibility. I will assess this issue by discussing the role played by the irreversible thermodynamic entropy produced by driving a quantum system out of equilibrium. Such framework will be then illustrated in the context of two recent experiments, one in cavity optomechanics and one involving intra-cavity ultra-cold atom systems, which demonstrate the experimental accessibility of non equilibrium thermodynamics in mesoscopic quantum systems.
