As the size of computer components approaches the atomic scale, quantum technologies will be necessary for the storing and processing of information. The ability to exploit quantum mechanics opens up a whole new mode of computation that may allow computations previously thought infeasible or impossible. Thus, this project team is working to develop novel systems and techniques for information processing, transmission and security by exploiting the properties of quantum mechanical operations.

The development of the Internet and the World Wide Web has changed the way in which we gather information. No longer is information only available as in a library, with items catalogued in an orderly manner. More and more often, information is presented as it is in the World Wide Web: as a mass of items with interconnecting links. This research team aims to extract information from such web-like collections by considering both the content of the items and the link structure that connects them, and the interaction of both components.
