Practical Quantum Computing - Closer than you think!

Friday, February 26, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

The quantum revolution is closer than you think! In the past, quantum computing was largely reserved for researchers, physicists, and scientists with direct access to physical quantum computing systems, and the scale of problems that could be solved was limited due to the number of available physical qubits. But the game has changed, thanks to the cloud and hybrid algorithms that take advantage of both classical and quantum computing resources.

Super-abiabatic control of complex quantum systems

Monday, March 1, 2021 - 10:00am to 11:30am

Presented by Aurelia Chenu, University of Luxembourg) Controlling the dynamics of quantum systems with high-fidelity is becoming a necessity to advance quantum science and technology. Techniques known as shortcuts to adiabaticity (STA) tailor excitations in nonadiabatic processes to prepare a given state in a finite time, without the requirement of slow driving. Their developments in isolated quantum systems have found broad applications.

Optimized Entanglement Purification

Tuesday, March 2, 2021 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Our speaker for this meetup is Stefan Krastanov who will talk about Optimized Entanglement Purification. Abstract: Quantum Entanglement is one of the resources that provide an advantage to quantum information processing that is inaccessible to classical hardware. However, the generation of quantum entanglement is a process prone to errors. We will discuss the standard techniques for mitigating these imperfections and delve deeper in how to optimally apply these techniques to the realistic noisy hardware becoming available in the upcoming decade.

Quantum computing for Financial applications

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 - 3:00am to 4:00am

Portfolio optimization, risk management, fraud detection - Many computational finance problems have a high degree of complexity and are slow to converge to a solution on standard computers. New ways of computing are required and can be found in Quantum technology, which is capable of solving such complex challenges - already today. Applications range from analysing different types of risk in financial markets, to optimization methods of financial portfolios which are used in banks, insurance companies, hedge funds and trading companies.

Tuesday, March 9, 2021 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Our speaker for this meetup is Michelle Victora, PhD. Abstract: We present an approach to purification and entanglement routing on complex quantum network architectures, that is, how a quantum network equipped with imperfect channel fidelities and limited memory storage time can distribute entanglement between users. We explore how network parameters influence the performance of path-finding algorithms necessary for optimizing routing and, in particular, we explore the interplay between the bandwidth of a quantum channels and the choice of purification protocol.

Towards Quantum Artificial Intelligence

Wednesday, March 10, 2021 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Abstract: Promising areas for near-term quantum applications are computationally expensive, wide-spread, important to practical applications and perhaps noisy in their own right. Artificial intelligence fits those criteria. Promising areas for machine learning applications demand small compact models for large and clearly labeled data sets. Quantum algorithms fit this description. Looks like a perfect match! What is missing? A sound framework for intuitive development of quantum software.
