Qyber\black is a network of researchers working on topics related to quantum control. It is run and supported by its members for its members. It is an open, free platform to support its members' research and release their results. We provide development, project management, hosting, computing, and communication resources.
For an overview of the projects on the site, explore the groups. Many projects are publicly available on the site without the need for an account. How to get support for these projects, if available (not all projects are supported or support may have been stopped), is documented on the project pages and typically does not require an account. Please see activities for an overview of our work.
- devops (development and operations) resources based on GitLab with PlantUML;
- a protected package registry, which can be used, e.g., as a docker container registry, at registry.qyber.black linked to the GitLab projects, only accessible via Qyber\black accounts;
- a MinIO S4 compatible high-performance object storage, for internal storage and releasing data;
- computing resources available are
- test, internal and external service hosting via a custom implementation linked into the clusters (see internal SVC portal);
- communication resources via Mattermost, a discord server and BigBlueButton with Greenlight, also linked into Jitsi and Zoom.
Qyber\black is hosted at the School of Computer Science and Informatics, Cardiff University on hardware provided by langbein.org and some systems from RIVIC and COMSC. Some services and hosts are located at IONOS (cloud server, VPS, etc). We can integrate GKE and AWS, and other compute resources, as, when and if needed, or if you want to provide additional resources to support the site.
Key members are
- Sophie G Shermer, Physics, Swansea University
- Carrie Anne Weidner, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Aarhus University
- Edmond Jonckheere, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering,University of Southern California
- Frank C Langbein, School of Computer Science and Informatics, Cardiff University; langbein.org
We are happy to add more members from anywhere whose work is aligned with ours. Check out the public projects to get an idea of what we are working on. If you are interested in joining, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with some details about you and why you wish to join or, likely even better, directly discuss this with a member. You do not need to join to access the resources we can share, as these are all publicly available. Further details on how to access protected/private resources are provided in the "Info" projects of the groups if this is possible.
