The first ever Quantum Delta NL Award was won by Stacey Jeffery (CWI and QuSoft) and Julia Cramer (Leiden University) for founding and developing WIQD – Women In Quantum Development.
In the quest for obtaining a working quantum computer, it is interesting and important to find out how classical and quantum computer perform similar tasks and if quantum computers are better.
Later update to this post – You can view the QuSoft seminar now here: —————- From the moment QuSoft was established, every Friday of the week a QuSoft seminar was organised (with some exceptions). What started as something for just the QuSoft researchers grew into a well-known seminar for which scientists from all over the […]
Charles Bennett (IBM Research) and Gilles Brassard (Université de Montréal) were awarded the 2023 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics, the world’s largest science prize, for their foundational work in quantum information. They share this prize with David Deutsch and Peter Shor. In honour of this prize, we are organising a symposium at the KNAW (The […]
Christian Schaffner appointed professor of Theoretical Computer Science, with special attention to quantum computing.
Dr. Christian Schaffner has been appointed professor of Theoretical Computer Science, with special attention to quantum computing, at the Informatics Institute of the Faculty of Science at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The appointment came into effect on 1 December 2021. Quantum Cryptography Schaffner’s main area of expertise is quantum cryptography. Cryptography is a fascinating […]
Coming November 3rd, Quantum.Amsterdam and the Centre for Quantum & Society have jointly organized the next Big Meetup.
The Quantum Software Consortium is building a new research community in the Netherlands in Quantum Information Science. But what is Quantum Information Science? You perhaps heard of the quantum computer. A computer that fundamentally uses different physics laws than a classical computer does. But like a classical computer, also a quantum computer uses software – […]
In this mini course you will learn about the characterization of noise in qubits and quantum gates. The lectures will be given by Arghavan Safavi-Naini (QuSoft, IoP, UvA) and Jonas Helsen (QuSoft, CWI). Topics: 1. The basics of noise in quantum computation, and different metrics (such as fidelity, diamond distance, unitarity) to quantify noise. 2. […]
