Advancing Interactive Learning

With SIT Alemira interactive lectures, university students and young professionals can engage with top-notch industry materials, better developing their careers in tech, research and science fields. Discover the unique collection of interactive lectures: Topological Quantum Matter, Machine Learning for Physicists, Introduction to Quantum Information Science.

Topological Quantum Matter

This lecture is unique in that it contains material that has been the basis of at least four Nobel Prizes (with more most certainly to come!)

Dive into Quantum Matter
Machine Learning for Physicists

The course covers basic concepts and helps to grasp common sense underlying the ever-popular topic of machine learning technologies.

Learn about MI
Introduction to Quantum Information Science

This course has to do with a beautiful hidden topological quantum structure of electrons moving in a crystalline solid.

  • "The direction of our research includes computers, cyber security, artificial intelligence, software engineering, autonomous machines, physics, quantum technology and advanced functional intelligent materials and a number of areas in business. It is important that all of these are highly connected and that all of them are leveraging each other - this integrative dynamic is one of the unique features of our institution."

    Serguei Beloussov, Founder of SIT and Chairman of the Board, CEO and Founder of Acronis

  • "We can not predict, we can not design such reactions on such materials on demand, because most of approaches we should have with science give you equilibrium properties, the most ground state properties. Anything above that is extremely complex and extremely complicated."

    Sir Konstantin Novoselov, Nobel Prize winner (2010), Chairman of the SIT Strategic Advisory Board, Prof. of Physics at NUS

  • "Randomness or chance is indeed important both as a philosophical problem and a very practical problem. Practical problem for cyber security which is super important in today’s information-based society."

    Nicolas Gisin, Member of SIT Strategic Advisory Board, Professor at SIT; Professor of Quantum Information and Communication, University of Geneva

  • "SIT wants to do discovery-based research developing radically new technologies for the long-term benefits of society. So, our mission is again to research and investigate the problems and the intersections of these 3 areas — computer science, quantum technologies advanced materials, and quantum business science."

    Andrea Ferrari, Member of SIT Strategic Advisory Board, Director of Cambridge Graphene Center

  • "At SIT, we also believe that making our world more sustainable goes together with continuously improving the way education and research is being done, performed and delivered. And by that we mean building tools, applications and platforms that will make a difference in the higher education space and in the research space."

    Laurent Dedenis, CEO of SIT Alemira

  • "Quantum mechanics and quantum systems are weird; they have counterintuitive behavior and the expectation that we have is that this is an important plus in order to identify and recognize unconventional patterns in data."

    Fabio Pammolli, Member of SIT Strategic Advisory Board, Prof. of Economics and Management at Politecnico di Milano
