Good choices from fewer qubits: new scheme solves optimisation problems efficiently

Encountered in industries from supply chain management to banking, optimisation problems that tax classical computers are a promising target for quantum computing to have an impact. A CQT team led by Principal Investigator Dimitris Angelakis has proposed algorithms that could bring that impact forward.

Meet a CQTian: Alessandro Luongo

Having got into hacking as a teen, Research Fellow Alessandro is now a quantum algorithms expert and author of an open-source textbook. On why he created a resource for quantum algorithms, he says, “The core thing for me was to give to people what I would have liked to have at the beginning of my PhD – all the mathematical knowledge that you need to understand the literature on quantum algorithms.” Hear more from Alessandro about the project and his path into quantum from hacking.
