Online Seminar #2: Squeezed lasing

Carlos Sánchez-Muñoz (IFIMAC-UAM), Invited Speaker The laser, originally described to be as a “solution seeking a problem”, is now a ubiquitous piece of technology and arguably one of the most successful practical applications of quantum mechanics. The key property behind its success is its capability to provide high-intensity light with a narrow linewidth and long…

Online seminar #1: Quantum Approximate Optimization Algorithm for Bayesian network structure learning

Vicente P. Soloviev (UPM) Bayesian network structure learning is an NP-hard problem that has been faced by anumber of traditional approaches in recent decades. In this work, a specific type ofvariational quantum algorithm, the quantum approximate optimization algorithm, wasused to solve the Bayesian network structure learning problem. Our results showed thatthe quantum approximate optimization algorithm…
