About the speaker: Vincent is a quantum-physicist with a doctorate from the University of Copenhagen where his research focused on quantum-computational chemistry and theoretical quantum-optics at the Niels Bohr Institute under supervision of professor Anders Sørensen. Previously he completed his Masters at the University of Tokyo and Bachelors at Delft University of Technology. Vincent also worked as a researcher at Google, in the quantum-hardware team of John Martinis, where he focused on implementing quantum-computational chemistry simulations and quantum optimization strategies on current-day quantum-processors with three different superconducting qubit architectures. In his role as CTO of Qu & Co, Vincent leads the company's quantum-algorithm development activities and our implementations of such algorithms on the quantum-processors of hardware partners.
The functioning of the renormalization group, in particular how it interpolates between different fixed points, is very similar to the understanding process of an intelligent actor (be it artificial or a natural one). Exploiting this analogy, we try to give a mathematical model of intelligence and understanding. We show how these thoughts work in scientific exploration, in image recognition, and we try to point out what is the main difference between the two. We also give some applications to demonstrate how these ideas can work in reality.
Spectral filtering allows us to manipulate the collected light statistics and the resonances induced by dipole-dipole interactions give rise to specific correlations, where the time symmetry of the correlations is broken. Based on the collective dressed states, we will explain that the study encompasses both the case of real processes, where the photons are associated with specific resonances and classical correlations between each other, and virtual processes, where pairs of photons are emitted with non- classical correlations. On the other hand, the dipole-dipole interactions give rise to new sidebands in the fluorescence spectrum due to specific couplings among the collective dressed levels which in turn depends on the spatial configuration of atoms. These couplings are the main responsible for the frequencies and variety of sidebands. We will explain the general method for finding the dressed energy levels for a system of any number of strongly coupled atoms and we solve this problem for two different spatial configurations of three coupled two-level emitters. We show that the coupling among dressed levels and consequently energies and number of sidebands in the fluorescence spectrum are different for each configuration. Thus, the fluorescence spectrum of strongly interacting atoms contains information about the number and configuration of atoms.
