New project builds Canada’s strength in high-risk, high-reward research

Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) researchers Christine Muschik, Rajibul Islam and IQC affiliate Roger Melko received the New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) for a joint project that aims to build the first quantum simulation with ions in Canada.

Awarded in the NFRF’s exploration stream, their project Quantum simulations of fundamental interactions with artificial intelligence, is recognized as an avenue to “generate opportunities for Canada to build strength in high-risk, high-reward and interdisciplinary research.”
