QIntern 2020 was successfully completed!

QIntern 2020 was successfully completed!

QWorld
We are happy to announce that we organized our first QIntern program during July-August 2020! This pilot program of QWorld ran for seven weeks, during which the participants, including students, worked with more experienced researchers and quantum technology enthusiasts. At the end of the event, the interns from over thirteen projects had the opportunity to present their works. The projects focused on various fields of quantum computer science, including quantum machine learning and quantum optimization. The interns did research on quantum computing with implementation on real devices, developed new educational materials, designed and implemented new software, and did educational research on quantum programming. At the end of QIntern 2020, the jury evaluated projects as well as presentations of the results and awarded prizes in two categories. For the best project:-…

QWebinars, QWorld
We invite you to watch the recording from the first Q&A session in the QWebinar series! Our first guest was Scott Aaronson, one of the best-known scientists in quantum computing and complexity theory, also known with his most popular blog "Shtetl-Optimized". In this amazing Q&A session, Scott answered the questions prepared by the moderators and also from the participants on quantum computing from the 80s to 20s. We thank Andris Ambainis, one of the world's leading experts on quantum algorithms, for being our special guest moderator!

Quantum Machine Learning & PennyLane

Quantum Machine Learning & PennyLane

QWebinars, QWorld
In the latest QWebinar, we will host Maria Schuld with her lecture "Quantum Machine Learning & PennyLane." She will talk about different aspects of “variational quantum machine learning algorithms”, including their role in the development of near-term quantum technologies, their interpretation as a cross-breed of neural networks and support vector machines, and strategies of fitting the quantum model to data. As a practical implementation, she will show how to use the open-source software framework “PennyLane” to integrate quantum circuits with machine learning libraries such as PyTorch and Tensorflow. The QWebinar will start at 18:00 (CEST) on June 17, 2020. Moderators: Abuzer Yakaryilmaz (QWorld & QLatvia) and Ayşin Taşdelen (QTurkey)Organizers: Abuzer Yakaryilmaz (QWorld & QLatvia) and Agnieszka Wolska (QWorld) About Maria: Maria Schuld works as a researcher for the Toronto-based quantum…
