In this talk I will focus on the three areas where I think quantum computing will have the most impact on future computer science: algorithms, security and resources. In this direction, I will present some basic results of my research on using quantum computers for machine learning, for secure delegated computation in the cloud and in understanding energy resources in quantum computation. The vision in addressing these and future questions is to work towards a future quantum internet.
Nana Liu is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Quantum Technologies in the National University of Singapore and the Singapore University for Technology and Design. She received her doctorate in Atomic and Laser Physics in 2016 from the University of Oxford as a Clarendon Scholar. Her research focus is on the advantages of using quantum resources for computation, in particular using light. Applications include using quantum computers for machine learning and quantum computation in the cloud. Her research also lies at the interface between quantum computation and security which will be useful in building a future quantum internet.
