Bell’s Inequality: The weirdest theorem in the world that won a Nobel Prize in 2022

John Clauser, Alain Aspect and Anton Zeilinger won the Nobel Prize in physics for 2022. Their work built off of one of the most important results in all of physics; Bells Theorem, invented by the late John Stewart Bell. Here we discuss why Bells Theorem is one of the most important, yet bizarre, results in […]

From quantum picturalism to quantum NLP and quantum AI with Bob Coecke

In 2020 the Oxford-based Quantinuum team performed Quantum Natural Language Processing (QNLP) on IBM quantum hardware [1, 2]. Key to having been able to achieve what is conceived as a heavily data-driven task, is the observation that quantum theory and natural language are governed by much of the same compositional structure – a.k.a. tensor structure. […]

Entanglement-Optimal Trajectories of Many-Body Quantum Markov Processes

In this talk Hannes Pichler presents a method to solve the equations of motion of open quantum many-body systems. It is based on a combination of generalized wave function trajectories and matrix product states. More specifically, we developed an adaptive quantum stochastic propagator, which minimizes the expected entanglement in the many-body quantum state, thus minimizing […]

Quantum Minesweeper: How to See a Bomb Without Looking

Imagine you are given a box and you can’t see what’s inside. All you know is that it is either empty, or it contains a highly sensitive bomb. If this bomb is hit by even a single photon, it will explode. Your challenge is to work out whether or not there is a bomb in […]

Best College Majors for Quantum Computing

Want a job in quantum but not sure where to start? If you’re still in school, the first choice you are going to have to make is your college major. Traditionally, most everyone working in quantum information science had a background in physics, but today that is not the case. In this video, Olivia discusses […]

Neural Network Decoders for Measurement-Induced Phase Transitions with Michael Gullans

Michael Gullans speaks on Neural Network Decoders for Measurement-Induced Phase Transitions as part of the Qiskit lecture seminar. Abstract: The sustained storage, transmission, or processing of quantum information will likely be a non-equilibrium process that requires monitoring the system and applying some form of feedback to produce fault-tolerance. In this talk, I will discuss a […]

Quantum-Enhanced Markov Chain Monte Carlo Simulations with David Layden

Here’s a talk by David Layden on Quantum-Enhanced Markov Chain Monte Carlo Abstract: Sampling from complicated probability distributions is a hard computational problem arising in many fields, including statistical physics, optimization, and machine learning. Quantum computers have recently been used to sample from complicated distributions that are hard to sample from classically, but which seldom […]

Quantum Simulations of Topological Majorana Modes with Oles Shtanko

Quantum Simulations of Topological Majorana Modes Abstract: Modern quantum devices can now outperform classical computers in physical simulations, which makes them an important tool for future physics research. As an example, I will focus on simulating the topological states of matter hosting Majorana modes — the exotic “half-electron” states. Observing Majorana modes in the lab […]
