We invite you to the next QWorld seminar. In this talk, Nathan Shammah will speak about open source in science and specifically in quantum science. He will talk about his personal account that brought him from being a user of scientific software packages to a developer and maintainer (QuTiP). He will talk about Unitary Fund, a non-profit organization where he helps support the quantum-tech open source ecosystem and develop software for research on error mitigation with an extraordinary technical team. See the registration details below.
