QuantumNet

QuantumNet is the first innovative start-up based in Italy that focuses on software issues related to Quantum Computing.

QuantumNet aims to develop skills and solutions that exploit the infinite possibilities of Quantum Computing, thanks to the collaboration with professors and researchers of the University of Naples Federico II.
The main advantage of this approach is the resolution of those highly complex problems that today require enormous time and technical resources to be addressed, such as those related to Cybersecurity, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence.

Topics

Optimization issues

The goal is the research of the best solution among all those possible through the maximization (or minimization) of certain quantities related to the problem itself.
It is evident that as the complexity of the problem and the number of variables involved increase, the classical algorithms can be inefficient and provide the optimal solution in not “reasonable” times. In this context, Quantum Computing can make it possible to effectively tackle problems that cannot be solved with current computers, and suggest a significant acceleration compared to classical algorithms thanks to the “superposition principle” that allows you to parallelize the calculations by performing operations on all possible solutions simultaneously.

Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

In the era of the Digital Economy, in which data is the new oil, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning are among the emerging technologies capable of performing specific tasks on data automatically to extract new knowledge. The huge amount of data available today involves a non-trivial and sometimes unsustainable processing effort for traditional computers. For this reason Quantum Computing allows you to manage large amounts of data and solve complex problems in a reasonable time by exploiting the superposition principle and the entanglement phenomenon that allows to parallelize operations and easily find correlations between data.

Cybersecurity & Encryption

Cybersecurity deals with the security and integrity of data and messages, which travel the web every day, to protect them from cyber-attacks. The advent of supercomputers and quantum computers themselves can compromise existing classical encryption algorithms that rely on the computational difficulty of traditional computers to effectively solve some complicated problems, such as prime number factorization, at the basis of some encryption algorithms. Quantum Computing can help develop various techniques to counter this phenomenon and create new methods of quantum cryptography, such as Quantum Key Distribution which allows generating a cryptographic key shared between two users offering high security guaranteed by the principles of quantum mechanics.

Chemistry and biogenetics

Among the promising applications of Quantum Computing, there is certainly computational chemistry. Given that the set of possible quantum states of a molecule is extremely vast and these are difficult to process by a conventional computer. The ability of quantum computers to parallelize computations could provide immense power to the machine to simulate molecules, and offer new opportunities for pharmaceutical research.
Another tempting application is in the simulation of random processes such as genetic DNA mutations. We need to consider that the generation of random variables in classical computers does not exist since these are generated by algorithms that are not random themselves. With Quantum Computing this generation process becomes possible thanks to the fact that the Qubits are represented by naturally random physical objects.

What is Quantum Computing?

Quantum Computing is the most innovative theme of the decade. It is a real technological revolution that, with new hardware devices and a new software approach, allows information to be represented and manipulated through “quantum bits”, ie Qubits.
If the basis of classical computing is the bit, at the basis of quantum computing we find the qubit or quantum bit. While the former can only assume a well-defined value (“0” or “1”, “open” or “closed”, “on” or “off”), the qubit can also assume superimposed values. According to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, a quantum element, such as the qubit, will never take on a well-defined value, but will always have overlapping and indeterminable states.
