Understanding the observed late-time acceleration of the cosmological expansion is one of the most compelling problems facing physics today. The University of Waterloo's new Distinguished Chair in Astrophysics, Will Percival, is leading an effort to understand why the Universal expansion is accelerating.
In 2012, a group of University of Toronto researchers led by Geoffrey Hinton sparked a revolution in artificial intelligence that has dramatically changed the world. Their breakthrough came after decades of research designing machine learning algorithms for use in computer vision tasks, such as feature extraction from raw image data.
How can we use quantum technology to tackle problems from high energy physics?
Dr. Christine Muschik recently joined the Department of Physics & Astronomy and the IQC. Her research addresses the question: How can we use quantum technology to tackle problems from high energy physics?
