IEEE Systems, Man and Cybenetics Society


Welcome to the website of the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society (SMCS) Technical Committee (TC) on Quantum Cybernetics.

The TC on Quantum Cybernetics was approved to establish on 30 March 2017. The aim of our TC is to provide a forum for idea exchange in the emerging research area of quantum cybernetics. Our TC on Quantum Cybernetics won the Most Active SMC Technical Committee Award in 2019-2020.

You are welcome to attend any of our TC activities which will be regularly updated on  this website and TC official website ( We encourage you to join the IEEE SMC. Please contact TC Chair if you are interested in joining our TC on Quantum Cybernetics.


        Our Goal

​​The goal of our TC is to provide a forum for idea exchange in the emerging research area of quantum cybernetics. Many fundamental problems in the emerging area are waiting for solutions and lots of applications are unexplored. For example, the development of estimation and control methods is a key task in quantum cybernetics, and the capability of feedback for enhancing robustness of quantum systems is worth deeper investigation. The application of quantum computing to enhancing the efficiency of machine learning is worth further exploring.

The purpose of this TC can be divided into three parts: 1) scientific, 2) technological and 3) educational.

1. TC and its activities will be focused on basic research on the emerging field of quantum cybernetics;

2. Support of transfer of discovered know-how in the area of quantum cybernetics to possible practical applications;

3. With support of young scientists in this field of quantum cybernetics, and dissemination of discovered know-how amongst scientific community.

Quantum technology is one of the most promising future technologies, and the development of quantum cybernetics can significantly promote the application of quantum technologies. The aim is to build a community of experts in the area of quantum cybernetics, who are excellent scholars in academic organizations and industrial companies. This community will be devoted to the development of more progressive, efficient and practical methods, with expected impact on quantum technologies and their applications.
