FIrst NEar-TErm ApplicationS of QUAntum Devices

Project description

Research paves the way for the first applications of near-term quantum devices

Quantum computers could spur the development of new breakthroughs in science and technology. However, utilising their advantage requires breaking barriers in development, optimisation and benchmarking of quantum algorithms. We are currently in the ‘noisy’ era of quantum computing with noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) processors. Such devices are limited in their ability to run textbook quantum algorithms. The EU-funded FINE-TEA-SQUAD project aims to develop a unifying framework that will enable NISQ devices to find practical applications. Researchers will design protocols for quantum state preparation and characterise broad families of states that can be prepared in a scalable way. They will also develop a practical certification toolset amenable to near-term devices, with special focus on the generation of certified randomness from a single NISQ device.
