In 2022 I’ve been able to attend in person two wonderful Summer schools. At the SQMS Summer School in Florence, Italy, I presented an overview of “Quantum Error Mitigation” (slides here). At the Advances in AI Summer school on Lake Como I gave a lecture on “Open-Source Software Development in Quantum Computing” (slides here).
Unitary Fund’s 2021 annual report is out. The breadth of activities has been growing, as the organization. Growing Unitary Fund’s activities has been the central focus of my endeavors in the past two years: have a look to see what we’ve accomplished and what comes next.
The art-science project Wisdom of uncertainty is a photographic project by Frank Stelitano which I contributed to artistically (generating plots on entropy), as scientific contributor (with a text on entropy) and as scientific advisor. The works has been exhibited at Villa Brivio Dec 15th, 2021 – Jan 31st, 2022, supported by Fondazione Luigi Rossi. Here an article about it.
In this post on the AWS blog, we show how Mitiq, the quantum error mitigation toolkit we are building at Unitary Fund, can be used to reduce errors through Braket on real quantum processors.
I gave a (remote) guest lecture on quantum information science to Waseda University students attending the course of “Introduction to Information Society and Science”.
Our article on PT-symmetric Liouvillian dynamics in the XYZ model has been published in Physical Review B.
I joined full time the Unitary Fund, a non-profit organization working with open source in the quantum computing ecosystem.
Just before leaving Japan, I gave a talk at the Tokyo Python Society Club.
I wrote an article about open-source software in science for the Italian online newspaper Linkiesta.
I was invited to Google AI Quantum in Los Angeles, where I gave a seminar on “Cooperative mechanisms in quantum physics and in its open-source community”.
In September 2019, I co-founded the Association of Italian Researchers in Japan (AIRJ) for which I am acting as vice president.
