It was with enthusiasm that I landed in Delft on a day of fine rain on November 1, 2021, thus marking the start of my internship at QuTech/TU Delft.
Op 16 januari 2022 is onze zeer gewaardeerde en geliefde collega prof. dr. Bas Edixhoven (Universiteit Leiden, Mathematisch Instituut) na een korte periode van ernstige ziekte overleden.
Stacey Jeffery, senior researcher at CWI and QuSoft in Amsterdam, is awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1.5 million euro for research on Algorithms, Security and Complexity for Quantum Computers (ASC-Q). The grant helps ambitious younger researchers launch their own projects, form their teams and pursue their best ideas.
After much anticipation, I finally arrived in Amsterdam on September 15, 2021 for my research master project at QuSoft/CWI. My project was very exciting.
A new podcast was launched starring Harry Buhrman, who explains some of the principles of quantum software and discusses why companies and societal organizations are already getting interested in understanding more about it.
CWI PhD-student Jordi Weggemans has won the Lorentz Graduation Prize for Theoretical Physics 2021 for his master thesis on a new quantum algorithm. The prize is awarded by the Koninklijke Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen (KHMW). He was awarded the prize online on Monday 29 November 2021.
On November 5, QuSofters Koen Groenland, Crownie Oche Ema & Philip Verduyn Lunel started the Quantum Quest with 47 participants from all over the World. Quantum Quest is a web class for high school students, organized by the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and QuSoft. This is the third edition.
On Friday November 5th 2021 the Quantum Software Consortium (QSC) hosted its 6th General Assembly in Leiden. Although some Covid measures were still in effect, it was very revitalizing to meet many QSC colleagues
for the first time in real life since the pandemic, which was an especially new feeling for the staff members that joined the QSC during the pandemic!
Zo'n vijftig jaar geleden stonden we aan de vooravond van het internet zoals we dat nu kennen. Niemand had toen gedacht dat we vandaag de dag online videocolleges konden kijken. Inmiddels is het niet meer weg te denken. Maar hoe ziet het internet van de toekomst eruit ?

Onze gevoeligste informatie is vaak versleuteld, maar is die bescherming ook bestand tegen ultrakrachtige quantumcomputers? En de Sociale Verzekeringsbank (SVB) toont openheid over de algoritmes die deze instantie - en andere - op ons burgers loslaat. Moet dat niet de norm worden ?
