Information Processing in Future Quantum Networks

Descripción del proyecto

Las rutinas clásicas y cuánticas unen fuerzas en redes cuánticas seguras

La computación cuántica y los protocolos de comunicación cuántica prometen unas mejoras inmensas de las capacidades computacionales y la transmisión segura de datos e información. En esta era de creciente interconectividad y amenazas relacionadas con la ciberseguridad, sentar las bases para unos protocolos de comunicación cuántica segura y fiable es un desafío cada vez más apremiante. El proyecto financiado con fondos europeos IPQNet investigará los protocolos para permitir un procesamiento de la información en una red cuántica. Se centrará en el potencial de combinar rutinas cuánticas y clásicas como partes de protocolos más grandes para una computación multiparte segura y modular.

Objetivo

We are now at a crucial point in building a next generation of quantum networks that will completely change the way we communicate. The discovery of quantum physics has been revolutionary in the way scientists understand the fundamental laws of nature, but we are now approaching an era where this will have an impact on society as a whole. We are already living in an interconnected world and are continuously dealing with issues of security and protection of our private data. Quantum technologies will therefore become more and more relevant due to their potential for improved security and faster computation, especially since the experimental state-of-affairs has reached the point of real communication scenarios. This research project will examine how to process information on a quantum network, from theory to experiment. This will be achieved by exploring composability and modular synthesis of quantum and classical routines as parts of larger protocols for secure multiparty computation. To succeed in this modular view, we need to (i) examine and verify the quantum resources (modules) and (ii) address the routing of information and construction of resources (connecting modules). Only after going through these steps can we return to the end-term goal of the project, which is to give novel protocols that can securely, and realistically be implemented in the near future. To this end, I will work closely with experimental groups and the industry, in order to implement the theoretical protocols and achieve a global perspective on how to process information in future quantum networks.
