The mission of the UTS Centre for Quantum Software and Information (UTS:QSI) is to research and develop software for quantum computers and to discover new information processing applications of quantum technologies. The UTS:QSI’s expertise in the software and information processing capabilities of quantum computing and communication technologies places it in a unique position in the Australian quantum technology research community, with a software and theory research program that complements the hardware focus of other Australian teams.
The UTS:QSI has five research programs: algorithms and complexity; AI applications; programming and verification; intermediate quantum computing and architectures; and information theory and security. This research agenda covers the breadth of topics in quantum software development and information science. From 2017 the UTS:QSI will be playing a major role in developing applications for the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technologies (CQC2T).
