Jan Wender: "The Atos Quantum Program and the Quantum Learning Machine"

At the end of 2015, the "Atos Quantum R&D" program was launched by then-CEO Thierry Breton at Atos. The program consists of a quantum computing development department and a scientific council, where renowned scientists steer the direction of the program and evaluate the results. This presentation will introduce the Atos Quantum R&D program and in particular the first product that emerged from it, the Quantum Learning Machine (QLM). Based on the observation that it is not yet clear how a practical quantum computer can actually be implemented, but at the same time there is a need for a device to develop QC programs, the most powerful simulator for QC has been developed. The lecture will conclude with a demonstration of the use of QLM.

Dr. Jan Reiner: "Simulation of quantum mechanical systems using quantum computers"

This webinar will explain the issues and problems of simulating quantum mechanical systems on conventional computers, how to map these simulations to a quantum computer and explore their benefits. The specific algorithmic implementations on quantum computers will also be compared with other discussed applications for quantum computing (i.e. optimization problems), with a special focus on feasibility in the NISQ era. This is followed by a short overview and outlook on the work and ideas of HQS Quantum Simulations on the topic of quantum mechanical simulation.

Recommended prior knowledge: Advanced
