Michael Nielsen

I'm a scientist. I helped pioneer quantum computing and the modern open science movement. I also have a strong side interest in artificial intelligence. All are part of a broader interest in ideas and tools that help people think and create, both individually and collectively. [bio, cv]

I work as a Research Fellow at the Astera Institute.

My online notebook, including links to many of my recent and current projects, can be found here. This is more up-to-date and complete than this webpage (which will eventually be deprecated).

Many of my technical papers can be found here.
