2013 IEEE Symposium on Quantum Computing and Computational Intelligence

Although quantum computing is still in its nascent days, there are experiments that successfully perform quantum computation on a small number of qubits. Recently, researchers at the NIST demonstrated continuous quantum operations using a trapped-ion processor. Other researchers have discovered a way to make quantum devices using technology common in our current chip-making industry. Historically, classical computer concepts and underlying technologies have been invented by mathematicians and physicists rather than engineers. It was engineers, however, who took basic concepts and ideas and created the practical powerful and inexpensive computers of today. We believe that the same will happen in case of quantum computing.

As quantum information and computation research continues to develop, we will see increasing interest in adapting the philosophy of quantum computing, information theory and ideology into other, more traditional aspects of computational research. Although the hardware technology to realize quantum computing still yet to be materialized, research about the theoretical aspects of quantum computing and its ideology has enjoyed some success with artificial and computational intelligence.

This symposium focus on combining various aspects of quantum computing, information theory, and other aspects with existing fields in computational intelligence.


Some typical research areas that will be discussed in this special session include (but are not limited to) the following:
