Topic: Can you win a quantum game?



At first, this talk will overview different approaches to enhancement of game theory with quantum information. We will start with ideas of taking advantage from quantum superposition [1],  then we will describe an entanglement-based scheme [2], and next we will present modern approaches based on Quantum Bayesian Networks [3].

Next, we will show that classical player does not have to be a looser in a competition with quantum opponent if we introduce  unawareness to the game [4]. We will also explain our ongoing approach to implementing example quantum  game on  IBM-Q and  present brief review of  ideas how to actually apply quantum games to the computer science problems [5].
