Ema Puljak, a second-year doctoral student with a research focus in ‘Quantum Computing and Machine Learning,’ conducting her research at CERN in collaboration with the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. She is a graduate in computer science from FER, Zagreb.
After completing an internship at CERN in the field of artificial intelligence algorithms applied to particle discovery, she seized the opportunity to explore what quantum computing has to offer in this area and its potential in conjunction with other cutting-edge technologies.
What is Quantum ML?
Quantum computing is a new, rapidly-emerging technology that harnesses the laws of quantum mechanics to solve problems too complex for classical computers. In this context, AI algorithms, although notably powerful in practice, remain difficult to study theoretically. Consequently, AI stands out as one of the most promising domains for the integration of quantum computing.
What characterizes quantum computers as exceptionally powerful, and how can they benefit the realm of artificial intelligence? Is the pursuit for quantum advantage a fitting objective for quantum AI? The upcoming talk aims to provide answers and insights to these and many more questions.
