27 April 2023

IFAC Ireland Logo

Trinity College Dublin's School of Engineering is excited to announce the First International Workshop on Quantum Algorithms, Machine Learning and Control, which will take place on 22-23 June, 2023 from 9:30am at Trinity College Dublin's Simon Perry Building, in the Demonstration Theatre.

This workshop focuses on theory and applications in the emerging field of quantum algorithms and their applications to problems in science and engineering. Two special areas of focus are Quantum Machine Learning and Quantum Control.

Join us for an exciting workshop that brings together two of the most promising fields of modern technology: quantum machine learning and quantum control. In this workshop, you will learn about the latest developments in these fields and how they are changing the landscape of modern computing and control systems.

Quantum machine learning is a fascinating field that brings together two challenging areas of research: classical machine learning and artificial intelligence, and quantum physics. This interdisciplinary field has already yielded practical research programs, exploring the possibilities of using quantum information processing to improve classical machine learning, and vice versa. With quantum computers' ability to perform calculations using qubits, quantum machine learning algorithms can solve complex problems that are currently beyond the capabilities of classical computers. Machine learning, on the other hand, enables the creation of algorithms that learn from data and improve their performance over time. The potential for revolutionary advances in drug discovery, optimization, and cryptography is immense, and quantum machine learning promises to play a significant role in shaping the future of these fields. Additionally, quantum machine learning raises fundamental questions about the limits and meaning of learnability in a quantum world, and how artificial intelligence can assist in scientific research and our everyday lives.

Quantum optimal control is a rapidly developing field that is critical for the advancement of quantum technologies. It seeks to find the best way to control and manipulate quantum systems to achieve specific goals while minimizing the effects of unwanted interactions. This field plays a crucial role in quantum computing and quantum information processing, where precise control over individual qubits or quantum gates is necessary for achieving high-fidelity quantum operations. Quantum optimal control techniques also have important applications in developing quantum sensors and communication systems.

This workshop is open to anyone interested in Quantum Machine Learning and Quantum Control.
