Quantum algorithms are a (random) walk in the park

Quantum computers are fast, and in the future they will solve certain problems much faster than regular (classical) computers. That creates opportunities, states prof. dr. Stacey Jeffery in her inaugural lecture. Before these quantum computers become a reality, a lot of research into quantum algorithms is necessary. These algorithms will be the key for lightning […]

Registrations open for Harry Buhrman’s farewell on June 3rd

On 3rd June, CWI and the UvA organize a farewell symposium to celebrate the many contributions Harry has made to theoretical computer science and to quantum computing over the course of his 30+ years in Amsterdam, including his co-founding (together with Kareljan Schoutens) of the research center QuSoft in 2015.

QuSoft Seminar: Special Edition

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 […]

Symposium in honour of Gilles Brassard & Charles Bennett

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 […]
