Randomness has established itself as a vital building block of information processing and represents an integral ingredient for practically any aspect in the field of information processing and technology. The principal objective of this project will be to establish and evaluate the role played by randomness in quantum information processing. We propose to address the main difficulties that arise through the use of randomness, in particular,

  1. the use of randomness as a theoretical tool to prove existence and properties of information processing applications; 
  2. the design of novel quantum information processing applications that exploit randomness; 
  3. the design and analysis of applications that work with real-world (that is, non-uniform) randomness;
  4. the construction of design techniques that produce high-quality randomness, both from a computational and adversarial perspective; and, finally,
  5. the use of randomness to analyse and improve the physical processes necessary for the design quantum communication and computation devices.

The consortium (composed of 8 research teams) aims to unite the forces of EU expertise in computer science, physics and mathematics to undertake a comprehensive study of randomness and quantum information within their research portfolio. Many of the targeted tasks combine the knowledge of partners. Hence, strong research interactions will be necessary to successfully achieve the objectives of the project.
