Quantum computing in the energy industry
In this talk, Dr. rer. nat. Marko Rancic, Head of Quantum Computing at TotalEnergies, will give an overview of TotalEnergies (https://totalenergies.com/) activities in the domain of quantum computing.
In the first half of the talk, I will stay in the domain of chemistry and material science and present state of the art quantum computing solvers. A special emphasis will be given to carbon capture with Metal-organic frameworks.
In the second half of the talk, contemporary optimisation algorithms for quantum computing will be mentioned with a brief overview of recently developed software solutions at TotalEnergies alongside potential directions for quantum error correction.
After obtaining his bachelor and masters degrees in physics at the University of Nis in 2010 and 2012 respectively, Marko Rancic obtained his Dr. rer. nat. degree at the University of Konstanz, Germany in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Guido Burkard. The topic of research was coherence and control of semiconductor qubits. He continued his academic journey at the University of Basel, Switzerland under the guidance of King Faisal International prize winner Prof. Daniel Loss where he namely worked on nanowires for quantum computing applications in spin and topological qubits.
Since October 2019 Dr Marko Rancic is employed by one of the biggest companies in the world, Fortune Global 500 company TotalEnergies, where he is the permanent senior researcher responsible for managing a multi-million euro research budget in quantum computing. The research team under his guidance is based in the outskirts of Paris and is composed of a dozen researchers working on different aspects of quantum hardware and software.
All applicants will be able to attend this meetup via the zoom application. Zoom link will be sent just before the event.
We are looking forward to another gathering!
