The marriage of ever-more sophisticated signal processing and wireless communications has led to compelling “tele-presence” solutions—at the touch of a dialing key.

However, the “quantum” leaps in both digital signal processing theory and in its nanoscale-based implementation is set to depart from classical physics obeying the well-understood laws revealed by science. We embark on a journey into the weird and wonderful world of quantum-physics, where the traveler has to obey the often-strange new rules of the quantum-world.

Hence, we ask the judicious question: can the marriage of applied signal processing and communications be extended beyond the classical world into the quantum world?

The quest for quantum-domain communication solutions was inspired by Feynman’s revolutionary idea in 1985: information-bearing bits can be mapped to particles such as photons or to the spin as well as to the charge of electrons for encoding, processing, and delivering information.

Against the backdrop of numerous open-research questions, this presentation will explore some of the topical problems in both quantum-computing-aided as well as in quantum-domain signal processing and communications. Commencing with a brief historical perspective, a variety of efficient quantum-assisted solutions will be exemplified. We will also discuss how the isomorphism of classic and quantum codes may be exploited for mitigating the hostile effects of quantum-de-coherence, which results in quantum-bit flips.

Speaker's Biography: 

Lajos Hanzo

Lajos Hanzo (FREng, FIEEE, FIET, RS Wolfson Fellow) received his five-year Master’s degree in electronics from the Technical University of Budapest in 1976, his doctorate in 1983, and his Doctor of Sciences (DSc) degree in 2004. During his career in telecommunications, he has held various research and academic posts in Hungary, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Since 1986, he has been with the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, UK, where he holds the Chair in Telecommunications. His current research interests are featured at (http://www-mobile.ecs.soton.ac.uk).
