The Technology Innovation Institute (TII) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, is a newly-established, top-funding state initiative that aims at becoming a major international hub for Science & Technology (https://www.tii.ae/). The Quantum Research Centre (QRC) at TII has recently launched world-class theoretical and experimental research groups on different quantum technologies (https://quantum.tii.ae/about-us-quantum).

The Quantum Algorithms Division, directed by Prof. Leandro Aolita, focusses on the development and deployment of quantum-enhanced methods for complex optimizations, matrix-arithmetics problems, machine learning, Monte-Carlo estimations, and many-body quantum simulations, among others. Our goals are two-fold: practical primitives for near-term quantum hardware as well as advanced procedures for future, fully-fledged universal quantum computers.

Research activities include

  • hybrid classical-quantum approaches
  • neural- and tensor networks
  • quantum signal processing
  • quantum error correction and mitigation
  • computational complexity
  • quantum-inspired and de-quantized algorithms
  • benchmarking/characterization of experimental quantum devices
  • quantum-circuit compiling
  • quantum-software development and deployment
