This lecture is focused on recent work in which use is made of modern developments in Quantum Computing (QC), and Deep Learning (DL) & Machine Learning (ML) to tackle some of the most challenging problems in turbulent combustion. The computational approach is via a stochastic model termed the Filtered Density Function (FDF). This model, originally developed by this lecturer, provides one of the most systematic means of describing the unsteady evolution of reactive turbulence. It is demonstrated that, if devised intelligently, DL/ML can aid in developments of high fidelity FDF closures, and QC provides a significant speed-up over classical FDF simulators.
