Working in research can always seem arduous and slow, but it does not mean that there is no progress; Investigation is constancy.
In aQuantum, following this philosophy, we continue working and we would like to talk about the state of the situation.
Since February the group has been focused on two main lines of research:
- Software Engineering
- Software development cycle
Initially there was a definition of research tasks among the different members of the group, but, quickly, we have been able to limit many formal and specific tasks when carrying out activities and apply them to specific fields and ideas.
This situation has led us to define a series of requirements, tasks and extra needs within current research, but it has also led to broadening the lines of research.
New lines of research
Thanks to the constant effort and deepening of the tasks that exist until today, we have the solid conviction that we must divide and specialize two new lines of research:
- Hybrid classical-quantum computing
- Use and improvement of artificial intelligence with quantum programming
We consider these two areas to be highly critical due to their closest and necessary application in time, given that there will be a time of integration and transition that will be experienced at a technical level and will require this expertise. This is therefore a decisive knowledge for the future of quantum development and, ultimately, for the future of development
