Webinars in the 3rd quarter 

Several exciting webinars await you in the next quarter. You will receive the invitations about 2 weeks before the date through our Community Manager David Niehaus. Please also visit our meeting point regularly to make sure not to miss any updates.


02.07.2020 | 11:00 – 12:30 | Webinar 

Prof. Dr. Frank Leymann: „Fundamental Quantum Algorithms 1: Quantum Fourier Transformation and Phase Determination 

In this first of two parts, Prof. Dr. Frank Leymann from the University of Stuttgart presents fundamental quantum algorithms. During the webinar, quantum Fourier transformations as well as phase determination are mathematically derived and their fields of application are discussed.

Recommended previous knowledge: Advanced

Prof. Dr. Frank Leymann: „Fundamental quantum algorithms 2: HHL, VQE and QAOA“. 

In this second part of Prof. Dr. Frank Leymann’s webinar series, further fundamental quantum algorithms are presented. HHL, VQE and QAOA are of special NISQ relevance and will be mathematically derived and discussed with respect to their fields of application.

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

At the end of 2015, the „Atos Quantum R&D“ programme was launched by the then CEO Thierry Breton at Atos. The program consists of a Quantum Computing (QC) 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.

17.09.2020 | 11:00 – 12:30 | Webinar 

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 what the benefits are. The concrete algorithmic implementations on the quantum computer will also be compared with other discussed applications for the quantum computer, such as solving 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.
