Deep Quantum Labs is lead by Prof Jacob Biamonte and is proudly part of the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology—Skoltech—a unique English-speaking international graduate only research university. Established in collaboration with M.I.T., Skoltech integrates the best Russian scientific traditions with twenty-first century entrepreneurship and innovation.
We work to understand collective quantum effects and this understanding enables us to utilize these same collective quantum effects in e.g. quantum enhanced machine learning software. Very generally, we call our topic, quantum complexity science.
Our approach forms a coherent, challenging and multidisciplinary research agenda, segmented as four interwoven initiatives.
Collective quantum effects can arise when at least one variable is unbounded and the system/problem exhibits an emergent property: such as an empirically exhibited—though not yet proven outside of the oracle model—exponential separation between quantum and stochastic computational processes. (Here the unbounded variable would be the size of the problem instance.)
