We are arranging the 1st HIIT Quantum Software Day in Helsinki on 3.2.2023 to get together people interested in quantum software, algorithms, and applications. The program is aimed to cover both basics from a CS perspective, examples of ongoing research, and discussion/networking of future opportunities.
Further information and registration here: https://www.hiit.fi/event/hiit-quantum-software-day/
We would appreciate it if you forwarded this message to other interested persons in your neighborhoods and networks.
The University of Helsinki has a science podcast series Utelias Mieli. In the latest episode, they discuss quantum computing and, especially, quantum software with me.
Over the past few years, software companies and software-intensive product development organizations have experienced turbulent changes in their business and operating environments. Furthermore, such current courses as large-scale digital transformations, data/AI technology developments and green transitions are likely to call for strong and sustainable capabilities for even enterprise-level agility.
In the annual (since 2018) Nordic Agile Survey industry-academia collaborative research, we have been investigating the current nature of agility in industry. The survey is again open for responding. What agility means and entails for Your company/organization nowadays—and in the future? Think about that, and reply to the survey here!
Snapshot videos from the IVVES project poster session on September 13 are now online. See the snapshot videos here for a quick look on our and our project partners’ work on testing and operations of AI.
The work on testing of AI and ML engineering in general continues in IVVES and IML4E projects.
ESE group will present the recent research results in FCAI day on November 16, 2022. See the following contributions that will be there:
- Lalli Myllyaho, Jukka K. Nurminen and Tommi Mikkonen: Node co-activations as a means of error detection—Towards fault-tolerant neural networks
- Kai-Kristian Kemell and Ville Vakkuri: ECCOLA – A method for implementing ethically aligned AI systems
- Ilmo Salmenperä and Jukka K. Nurminen: Hyperparameter Optimization of Quantum Annealing Boosted Restricted Boltzmann Machines

Artificial Intelligence Governance and Auditing (AIGA) project, which ESE is a participant, will have its Final Seminar. We will present the key results of the project. We will also host more general discussions about the latest developments around responsible AI. Both researchers and industry representatives will share their views in the open seminar, and the program ends with an informal networking event.
The final seminar will take place on 13.10.2022 at the Turku School of Economics. A live stream is provided for remote participation. Please make sure to register before 5.10. (16:00).

Yesterday we had the poster session for our European IVVES project at the university. Very good discussion about AI and testing – and of ML engineering in general. The work still continues in https://ivves.eu/ and https://iml4e.org/ projects.
IVVES https://ivves.eu/ is one of the major machine learning engineering projects we are running. Come and see the key results of the project. No registration, just walk into the University of Helsinki main building (Unioninkatu 34), grab a cup of coffee, walk around, and chat with the experts presenting the posters.

Quantum computing is a hot topic. The big question is how do we map real-life problems to quantum computers. A new kind of thinking is needed for the creation of quantum software. A successful approach by one of our doctoral researchers Valter Uotila
We would be welcome new industrial use cases or challenges.
