Bio

Simrit Dhanjal is amazed by the rapid advancements in technology society has undergone in such a short span from the emergence of the smartphone to the development of artificial intelligence, but nothing has astounded her more than the recent milestones achieved by quantum computing. Google’s recent milestone of achieving “quantum supremacy” with its primitive quantum computer solving in 200 seconds the same problem it would take the fastest classical computer 10,000 years to solve demonstrates the sheer power of quantum computing that no other technology wields. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg – through heightening her own computer science knowledge, she endeavors to devise solutions to the world’s disastrous problems. Through exploring probabilistic artificial intelligence, she aspires to leverage quantum computing to simulate climate change models and viable solutions.
