A key piece to understanding how quantum gravity affects low-energy physics

Researchers have, for the first time, identified the conditions for theories of quantum gravity to be compatible with one of the paramount predictions of quantum theory and relativity: The Unruh effect. 

In a new study led by researchers from the University of Waterloo, the International School for Advanced Studies and the Complutense University of Madrid a, solid theoretical framework is provided to discuss modifications to predictions of quantum field theory caused by the microstructure of space-time.

Étendre la portée de l’IA classique dans le monde quantique

Une bourse Google de recherche universitaire propulse l’apprentissage automatique quantique.

Le laboratoire de physique de l’information, dirigé par le professeur Achim Kempf, a obtenu l’une des bourses de recherche universitaire 2018 de Google. La physique de l’information, objet principal des travaux du laboratoire de M. Kempf, constitue un vaste domaine de recherche allant de la relativité générale à la physique quantique, en passant par la théorie de l’information et l’intelligence artificielle (IA).

Extending the reach of classical AI into the quantum realm

A Google Faculty Research Award propels quantum machine learning forward.

The Physics of Information lab, led by Professor Achim Kempf, was awarded one of the 2018 Google Faculty Research Awards. Kempf’s lab focuses on the physics of information, a wide research field that ranges from general relativity and quantum theory to information theory and artificial intelligence (AI).
