Quantum Machine Learning
Wireless & Optical Communications
Quantum machine learning is a forward-looking fundamental research topic to break out the physical limits of artificial intelligence such as computing time and energy constraints. Many research groups have been reporting dramatic leaning performance gains by use of quantum algorithms as well as quantum accelerations in computation. QuIC is pursuing to find quantum algorithms for efficient machine learning that can potentially surpass the AI singularity, by speed up and by reduction in energy use, in the long term future.

Quantum Information Systems Information technology is rebirthing with a disruptive advancement - Quantum information system can solve NP-hard problems in polynomial times and share critical information with a remote node unconditionally securely. We study and develop new protocols and theories on quantum key distribution (QKD) with experimental demonstration.
