Laboratory for Digitalisation — Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Mauerer

The Laboratory for Digitalisation primarily focuses on the intersection between three research areas: Quantum Computing, Systems Engineering, and Software Engineering. Future computing systems will leverage non-classical algorithms, and their hardware and software architectures need to combine advantages of classical and quantum processing units. Consequently, scientific progress needs interdisciplinary thinking across fields now more than ever. The group seeks cross-cutting answers to highly topical scientific questions and participates in active transfer into applications.

Quantum Computing

We work towards quantum advantage on gate-based quantum computers and quantum annealers by designing integrated quantum algorithms, systems and software.

Systems Engineering

The Systems Architecture Research Group investigates modern architectures for embedded systems, with a strong focus on OSS components. Head: Dr.-Ing. Ralf Ramsauer

Software Engineering

We further quantum and classical software engineering by mining quantitative insights using statistics and machine learning, with a particular focus on reproducibility.
