Student Assistant Quantum Computing / Quantum Circuit Cutting

The »Self-Learning Systems« group at Fraunhofer IIS is part of the »Precise Positioning and Analytics« department and located at the institute’s Nuremberg site. Our team members have diverse academic backgrounds from computer science, engineering and physics. Since 2019 our group has delved into cutting-edge topics within the realm of quantum computing, including quantum machine learning, machine learning for quantum compilation, error correction, and quantum-circuit cutting.

The field of »Quantum Circuit Cutting« is an emerging research domain in quantum computing, aiming to make optimal use of available quantum computing resources by partitioning quantum circuits into smaller components that can be evaluated on a quantum computer. Within the »Self-Learning Systems« group, we want to explore automated approaches for circuit partitioning and the selection of the most optimal cutting techniques.
