Hausi Müller vividly recalls the excitement he felt being part of the computing scene in the early 1970s, when the digital world was starting to explode. The changes it promised seemed like science fiction then.
Fast forward 50 years, and recent advances in quantum computing have got Müller just as excited as he was back then.
“This is an amazing time, it’s like being in a giant candy store,” says Müller, a UVic professor of computer science. “Quantum computing is a completely new type of computing—a whole new paradigm—and it’s given me that same feeling all over again.”
Since mid-2019, Müller has worked tirelessly to create and orchestrate the most extensive, high-profile international conference believed ever to have been held on quantum computing.
The first IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering...
