Ronald de Wolf (CWI, UvA, QuSoft) and his co-authors will receive the prestigious Gödel Prize for outstanding papers in theoretical computer science. The Gödel Prize is jointly awarded by the ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and Computation Theory (ACM SIGACT) and the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS). The prize will be awarded […]
Researchers Ludovico Lami (QuSoft, University of Amsterdam) and Mark M. Wilde (Cornell) have made significant progress in quantum computing by deriving a formula that predicts the effects of environmental noise. This is crucial for designing and building quantum computers capable of working in our imperfect world.
Stieltjesprijs 2021-2022 for Freek Witteveen: how to understand physical systems in the language of quantum information theory?
Freek Witteveen, who did his PhD research at QuSoft, has been awarded the Stieltjesprijs for the academic year 2021-2022. In his work he has contributed to the understanding of how to use quantum information theory to better describe many-body physics.
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.
