Quantum computers(QC) in recent years have gained a great surge of technological advancement, yet to this day their notorious “noisiness” has stalled their full incorporation into studies concerning complex systems. In this talk by presenting our new framework for Transition Path Sampling (TPS), a Monte Carlo based method for capturing rare events in complex systems, I aim to demonstrate how we could utilize these machines to our advantage even in the era of “NISQ” devices. In particular, by integrating Artificial Intelligence, QC, and Molecular Dynamics, our framework has been successful in tackling outstanding problems which fundamentally limited the application of previous formulations of TPS onto complex biomolecular transitions. Finally, I will present our latest result where by further refining our approach, we were able to sample unfolding pathways of a protein that previously required the specialized supercomputer ANTON in order to observe near native state re-arrangements.
