INTRO

Which computational tasks are amenable to quantum speed-up? This research line addresses this fundamental question and develops and investigates new quantum algorithms. This activity is focused on the many-qubit regime, where full-fledged error correction and fault tolerant computation becomes possible. Important research questions are the verification and debugging of quantum algorithms – the very nature of quantum computing preempts methods known from classical computer science and calls for fundamentally new strategies and protocols.

“At QuSoft, I have the freedom to set my own research agenda, and work on topics that I find both interesting and important. I am fortunate to count as colleagues some of the founding members of the field of quantum computer science, whose papers I studied in my undergraduate quantum computing course”. 

QUSOFT COLLABORATIONS

/ Actual quantum projects

QuART

QuSoft and SURF joined forces in a one-year partnership. Operating under the name QuART, the collaboration will reveal what quantum computing can do for meteorological ray tracing. Using the properties of a quantum computer allows acces to faster and improved weather models.


Toyota

In a joint research initiative with QuSoft, Toyota, UvA and VU, the aim is to explore potential usage of quantum computing for research and development. The project will run for two years and its focus is to study photocatalytic systems on quantum computers.



Bosch

Bosch and QuSoft have joined forces in a two-year collaboration. The goal is to examine how quantum computing could benefit this multinational. Lines of research include quantum computing’s potential applications in design processes and artificial intelligence, as well as the technology’s capacity to speed up optimization processes.
