Scientific computing is a critical component of much of the work that takes place at TRIUMF and at our partner facilities around the world. In recent years, the amount of data produced across the globe has increased exponentially at research facilities and private businesses alike. With rapid advances in large-scale computing, big data, machine learning, and quantum computing, these technologies are beginning to have serious implications on how we do our work, and it is imperative that we remain part of this fast-changing field.
TRIUMF is partnering with Germany’s Helmholtz Association, D-Wave in Burnaby and 1Qbit in Vancouver to host a Data Science and Quantum Computing Workshop at TRIUMF from June 27-29, 2018, to develop further collaboration and to explore new tools in scientific computing.
The topic of the workshop will be:
How can we use machine learning and quantum computing in Big Data and Large-Scale Computing to enhance our research output?
