Eliška Greplová: Quantum Matter Meets Artificial Intelligence
February 3, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Meeting ID: 684 7017 3961
Speaker: Eliska Greplova, Assistant professor at the Department of Quantum Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology
Abstract: The fields of condensed matter, artificial intelligence and quantum computing have independently experienced a number of breakthroughs in the last decade. In this talk, I am going provide an illustration of their mutually beneficial overlaps and emerging interdisciplinary applications. Specifically, I am going to show how AI-motivated ansätze for quantum wave functions can help us solve complex problems in topological condensed matter physics. The emergent topological modes can in turn redefine a figure of merit for design of quantum devices – that, to close the circle – give rise to challenging control problems that can be efficiently solved with the help of machine learning algorithms.
