Summary: This Project aims to enhance the power of high-tech quantum simulators to meet the demands of computer modelling intensive industries such as drug and vaccine design and new energy. Aligned to Australia’s innovation agenda and Advanced Manufacturing priority, the Project expects to maximise the performance of near- and midterm quantum simulations using innovative quantum programming techniques related to digitisation and control. Expected outcomes include; better understanding of limits in industry-scale quantum computers and improved error mitigation techniques. This should generate long-term productivity increases across a range of important sectors of the Australian economy that benefit from access to more powerful computer modelling.
