Quantum jumps at Holmenkollen

November 7th to 9th we had the pleasure of hosting a November School on Quantum Computing. At the risk of appearing cocky: Beforehand we were very proud of the program we had put together. And the lecturers did not let us down!

Several aspects of quantum computing were addressed. To name a few:

  • Quantum error correction
  • Quantum annealing
  • Quantum reservoir computing
  • Quantum hardware
  • Quantum computing for quantum chemistry
  • Quantum software engineering
  • Quantum states encoded in neural networks
  • Quantum noise

The lecturers included both academic researchers and representatives from the industry, specifically from D-Wave and IBM.

We believe it is fair to say that many large quantum leaps were made in the participants’ knowledge in quantum computing. In addition to our own PhD and Master students, people from Chalmers University of Technology, the University of Oslo, Lund University, Simula and the Norwegian School of Economics.

The venue provided a very nice atmosphere for getting to know more of the many flavours of quantum computing – and the growing community of people within the field.

Read more about it on the School’s website. Here you will also find the slides from most of the lectures – and a gallery. As small excerpt from this gallery is seen below.

Proud organizers: Andre Laestadius and Sergiy Denysov.
