Information is physical

What is quantum information science?
Quantum computers have emerged as the most viable candidate for a computing technology that can push beyond the limitations of the classical Turing Machine and the oncoming consequences of the end of Moore’s Law. This key technology stems from the realization that information processing is fundamentally connected to physical theories and that our most basic physical theory determines our capacity to process information. Quantum Information Science lies at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, physics, and engineering and this interdisciplinary approach has caused a revolution in thinking in both the physical and information sciences.
About the Centre for Quantum Software and Information
The UTS Centre for Quantum Software and Information (UTS QSI) is a world-leading research institute for quantum computing and home to a new state-of-the-art Millikelvin Quantum Science lab facility for superconducting qubit experiments. We work with researchers in Australia and around the world on both the foundational understanding of quantum information science and on developing the software, information processing and hardware infrastructure required for future quantum technologies.
Our theoretical research spans the “full stack” of development of quantum computing and communication, while our hardware team focusses on developing tools and techniques critical for superconducting circuit-based quantum information science, one of the most promising hardware platforms for quantum computing. Research strengths include:
- Quantum control and characterization
- Quantum architectures and fault tolerance
- Quantum algorithms, complexity, and applications
- Quantum programming languages and software development
- Quantum machine learning and AI applications
- Quantum cryptography and security
- Quantum simulations
- Quantum hardware and devices
Experimental quantum information science and superconducting qubits
UTS QSI's long-established expertise in software and information processing capabilities of quantum computing and communication technologies places it in a unique position in Australia. QSI’s unique research strengths in software and theory complement not only our hardware and experimental activities, but also the research taking place in other world-leading quantum technology communities.
