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.
