    We will present in this talk some new ideas and features pertaining to Higher Order Quantum Walks (also known as Quantum Walks with memory). It is known that quantum walks play a very important role in the design of algorithms for our "soon to arrive at a store near you" quantum computers. Because of this, there is an active research community constructing various different types of quantum walks with different properties.

  • We are pleased to announce that our employee, Adam Glos, obtained in this year's edition of the Etiuda 7 competition the financing of the project entitled "Analysis and application of quantum spatial search". Etiuda competition is addressed to young researchers without PhD degree, and its goal is to support the preparation of doctoral dissertation. The project will be implemented in cooperation with the Center for Quantum Computer Science, Faculty of Computing, University of Latvia .

  • Prof. Erol Gelenbe from IITiS PAN was awarded the honour of "Commandeur de l'Ordre National du Merite" by a decree of President Emmanuel Macron that was published in the Journal Officiel on 30th May 2019. He was one of only 2 academics thus recognised this year.

    Research goals of this talk are focused on the renewal theory, some aspects of the fluctuation theory and asymptotic properties for the first order maximal autoregressive processes of the Kendall type, which are discrete time Lévy processes under the Kendall convolution. Since most of the considered processes have heavy tailed distributions, then we rely on the use of results in the theory of extreme event modeling.
  • ITAI PAS is co-organizing the Conference on Modelling Methods for Computer Systems, Networks and Bioinformatics - ISCIS 2019, which will be held on 14-15 October 2019 , at the Paris Scientific Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences, 74 Rue Lauriston, 75016 Paris.

    In this talk, we shortly introduce the emerging field quantum software (quantum programming and quantum machine learning), and then we discuss how we can be involved and then shape the field. We explain why education is our primary focus and how we can use pedagogical tools to attract new generation and people to the field. We share our own experiences, our ongoing projects, and also our upcoming projects. At the end, we discuss possible collaborations.

  • Adam Glos laureatem programu START 2019We are pleased to announce that our employee, Adam Glos, received a START scholarship awarded by the Foundation for Polish Science for the most talented young scientists from all over Poland. Congratulations!
