Funding of ,,Perspectives of a quantum digital transformation: Near-term quantum computational devices and quantum processors"
Quantum computers are seen as one of the key technologies of the 21st century. Can they revolutionize the computational capacity of computers? Which new insights do they offer for high energy physics or quantum chemistry? These are the questions on which the first Einstein Research Unit (ERU) of the Berlin University Alliance (BUA) will be focusing.
The interdisciplinary research team of the partners Free University of Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technical University of Berlin and Charité - Universitätsmedizin, which includes IRIS Adlershof members Oliver Benson and Dr. Tim Schröder , has made it its task to explore the potential of the quantum digital transformation. They will combine expertise in theoretical and experimental physics, applied mathematics, computer science and machine learning in a unique way.
The Einstein Research Unit ,,Perspectives of a quantum digital transformation: Near-term quantum computational devices and quantum processors" will initially receive two million Euros in funding over the next three years.
