Many QUISCO representatives were presenting at the Institute of Physics Meeting on Quantum Technologies in London 17-18th December 2012. Researchers from Glasgow, Strathclyde, Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh universities gave both invited and contributed lectures on their latest results. Daniel Oi (Strathclyde) gave an overview of current efforts on performing entanglement experiments in space using CubeSats, extremely […]
Outstanding PhD applicants who would like to study in Scotland should look at the SUPA Prize Studentship. Deadline is 23:59 GMT Thursday 31st January 2013.
QUISCO are requesting expressions of interest from quantum information researchers in Scotland to join the management team, help organise events and co-ordinate local institutional activities. If you would like to be considered for these roles, please contact Elham Kashefi.
The next QUISCO meeting will be at the University of Strathclyde on the 7/11/2012 from 11am to 6pm. For directions to the university please see here. Links to campus maps are below. Speakers include Dan Browne (UCL), Andreas Buchleitner (Freiburg), Jeremy O’Brien, (Bristol), Vedran Dunjko (Heriot-Watt), Daniel Oi (Strathclyde) and Raphael Dias Salva (Edinburgh). There […]
Friday, 13 July 2012, 4:00 pm Room G.07, School of Informatics 10 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB and afterwards for a drinks and canapé reception Quantum Computing and the Limits of the Efficiently Computable I’ll discuss what can and can’t be feasibly computed according to physical law. I’ll argue that this is a fundamental question, […]
Venue: School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, Room 4.33/4.31 Times: 15:00 till 16:30 New Computational Insights from Quantum Optics Tuesday 10/7/2012 In work with Aleksandr Arkhipov, we proposed a rudimentary form of quantum computing, based on linear optics with nonadaptive measurements; and used a connection between linear optics and the permanent function to show that […]
We’re delighted to announce that Prof. Aaronson will be visiting us from July 9 till July 13 and will present a series of lectures on quantum complexity theory covering topics on complexity of linear optics and information content of quantum states. The venue is the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, Room 4.33/4.31 on Tuesday, […]
