The European Laboratory CERN is synonymous with the advancements in particle physics. The research at CERN hopes to hold answers to what forms the building blocks of the universe. CERN is home to the world’s largest particle accelerator, The Large Hadron Collider. With all these advancements there is a mighty chance that the classical computers will reach their limit.
The computing requirements might be much harder for the classical computers to handle. This is where the quantum computer comes into picture.
CERN openlab is working with worldwide research community to explore innovative computing solutions and IBM has joined the collaboration. In this episode of DeepTech Studio, Alberto DI Meglio, Director at CERN openlab talks about the importance of quantum computing and how it will aid research at CERN and help arrive at answers the physicists have been looking for.
Alberto is a graduate in aerospace engineering and holds a PhD in Electronics and Electrical Engineering from the University of Birmingham. He also served as an officer in the Italian Navy.
