Description

LEADER OF THE GROUP ALGORITHMS AND COMPLEXITY: HARRY BUHRMAN

Our research group designs software for the computing technology of the future, especially quantum computing. Based on the laws of quantum mechanics, which tell us that systems and particles can be in multiple states at once, quantum computing is radically different from computing as we know it. Our quantum software requires fundamentally different techniques and approaches based on superposition, interference and entanglement. Ultimately, our research will result in better, faster and more reliable computer systems for society. Our research group is involved in QuSoft, the new Dutch research centre for quantum software.

Outsourcing computations to a quantum computer you can’t trust

Outsourcing computations to a quantum computer you can’t trust

Quantum computers hold great promise, but to what extent can we trust the outcome of these elusive machines? In her PhD thesis, Yfke Dulek investigates ways to delegate computations to a quantum computer, focussing on the question how trustworthy the outcomes will be. Her research could pave the way for creating security guarantees in quantum computing.
