Quantum Computing: Towards Practical Applications

About this Research Topic

Quantum computing is a disruptive technology that promises to impact different sectors of academic research and industry. In the past decade, there has been a great effort in the development of quantum computers and much progress has been achieved. Concrete examples of such progress are the so-called quantum supremacy, that has been recently demonstrated by Google, and the small scale quantum computers that are remotely accessible by the public via cloud services. Despite the recent progress, many challenges remain. To achieve practical usage, the development of quantum computers will need new innovative solutions.

This Research Topic aims to discuss the recent advances, challenges, and perspectives related to practical applications of quantum computation. Topics of interest to this collection include, but are not limited to:
• quantum algorithms,
• quantum-inspired computation,
• hybrid quantum-classical computation,
• quantum computation models,
• adiabatic quantum computation,
• digital and analogue quantum simulation,
• quantum machine learning,
• quantum error correction and quantum control,
• quantum hardware development.


Keywords: Quantum Algorithms, Computation Models, Machine Learning, Error Correction, Hardware Development


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
