Back in person - physical Meetup in London

Monday, August 2, 2021 - 11:30am to 1:00pm

Back to our 2019 roots we will have an unstructured "meet and talk" for those who are happy meeting in central London.

Come along, buy yourself a beer and talk about how much has changed in the world of quantum since we last met here 18 months ago. No official start time. There will be people there from 5:30pm

We will meet at The Vintry near Bank and Cannon Street. At this point we have not confirmed if we can have a sign-posted area but we will communicate more nearer the time about where exactly in the bar.

Quantum is no longer just cool physics – there is money to be made

Monday, August 2, 2021 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Presented by Andrew Lord, BT

I will outline the threat to security from quantum computers and introduce the quantum solution known as Quantum Key Distribution or QKD. I will show how huge strides have been made in the last 8 years to bring QKD to the point of industrialisation, and will describe examples from the ongoing BT quantum project. Finally I will explore the remaining challenges for this exciting technology.

Topological Quantum Computing : Principles and Possibilities

Thursday, August 12, 2021 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

A topological quantum computer is a theoretical quantum computer proposed by Russian-American physicist Alexei Kitaev in 1997. It employs two-dimensional quasiparticles called anyons, whose world lines pass around one another to form braids in a three-dimensional spacetime (i.e., one temporal plus two spatial dimensions).

Quantum Stammtisch #13 (Online Quantum Computing discussion)

Monday, August 23, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

At Quantum London we are building a community. A core part of this is more informal discussion, the opportunity to ask "silly questions", and the possibility of repeatedly meeting interesting people.

That's what our Quantum Stammtisch are all about. Come and join in - switch on your camera and talk if you want to, or simply listen and post questions in chat. No rules - except we expect professional behaviour.

Quantum Computing for Quantum Chemistry

Saturday, September 11, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Topic abstract: One of the most promising applications for Quantum Computing, and the first to be proposed, are its applications to Quantum Chemistry. In this talk, I would like to introduce the basic algorithms of Quantum Computing applied to Chemistry and their theoretical motivation. Then we will go over one Qiskit tutorial explaining the Variational Quantum Eigensolver and propose and solve an exercise on how to carry out similar calculations using Phase Estimation. The content of the talk can be thought of as foundational.

Hybrid Quantum-Classical Algorithms in QML: A Lightning Review

Saturday, September 18, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Title: Hybrid Quantum-Classical Algorithms in QML: A Lightning ReviewSpeaker: Dr. Bhaskar Roy BardhanAbstract: Two of the cornerstone topics in quantum machine learning are quantum dataand hybrid quantum-classical models.

Quantum Communication

Saturday, September 25, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Topic abstract :With the growing interest and innovation in quantum computing, the security of classical cryptography is at risk. As classical cryptography is based on complex mathematical problems, which could be solved in a fraction of second with these QCs. Quantum communication provides solution to this problem, based on the fundamentals of quantum mechanics such as no-cloning theorem and uncertainty principle. Information is encoded in different degrees of freedom of single photons such as polarization, phase, spin.
