Generalized contextuality refers to the impossibility of providing a context-independent probabilistic model for statistical data. In this talk, we will explore in more detail this concept and its relation to quantum theory. It is believed that contextuality is the most prominent nonclassical feature of quantum statistics. We will then study contextuality in relation to the circuit model of quantum computations and argue that it is a necessary resource for any quantum computational advantage.
