Our podcast ML4Q&A

Nature is fascinating and so is physics let alone quantum physics! Join us as we delve into the lives of scientists and the complexity of their research topics. Grab a drink, hop on a bus or go for a walk and listen to the many different stories about being a scientist and basically doing something for a living only a few can understand.

Our guests are all involved in the research mission of ML4Q, a German consortium dedicated to develop the best hardware platform for quantum information technology, and provide comprehensive blueprints for a functional quantum information network.

RECENT EPISODE

 

In the first episode, we meet Martino Calzavara, a PhD researcher in the PGI-8 Institute for Quantum Control at the Forschungszentrum Jülich. We talk about him moving to Germany for his PhD and learning German, his experiences in academia as part of ML4Q as well as ultracold atom systems and how quantum control could help to cool these. We also talk about his simulations of these systems and machine learning, conferences in the times of a pandemic and Italian Pannetone vs. Pandoro.

Listen here to the full podcast episode with Martino or using your podcatcher.

We also prepared this short video to give you a taste of the full episode. Enjoy!

What is ML4Q&A?

 

In our new podcast series ML4Q&A we want to give researchers in the cluster the opportunity to explain their research activities to the scientific community and the scientifically interested public. We will talk about specific projects, but also about how the field of quantum technology is evolving and how it is to be part of this field. The podcast is going to feature the work of members in and close to ML4Q in different academic positions.

Why podcasting?

 

Because voice is the new thing! Well, this may be part of it, but we also want to offer content in different formats and make the travel sessions between the different locations of ML4Q (once traveling is possible again) more interesting by giving you something to listen to.
