I’m Alessandro (Scinawa). I am a researcher in quantum algorithms at CQT (Centre for Quantum Technologies). I’ve done a PhD in quantum machine learning at IRIF (Institut de Recherche en Informatique Fondamentale) and PCQC (Paris Center for Quantum Computation). My PhD was sponsored by Atos Quantum Lab, and I am the author of 2 patents in quantum technologies.
In another life, I was a contractor for some nation-wide projects for 3 ICT companies. I’ve also been an expert witness (consulente tecnico di parte) for 2 court cases. I am a founding member of Inclusive Hacker Framework. A decade ago I started to be involved in the vivid italian hackers’ community, where sometimes I contribute with talks. I am also a fellow of Hermes Center for digital human rights. I put my code online on Github. For more details please see Linkedin, and Scholar.
I write new quantum algorithms with specific focus on quantum machine learning. Furthermore, I also study how to apply quantum algorithms to solve real problems in:
