Anderson and dynamical localization have been experimentally observed with ultra-cold atomic matter. Feshbach resonances are used to efficiently control the strength of interactions between atoms. This allows to study the delocalization effect of interactions for localized wave packets. The delocalization processes are subdiffusive and slow, thereby limiting the quantitative experimental and numerical analysis. We propose an elegant solution of the problem by proper ramping the interaction strength in time. We demonstrate that subdiffusion is speeded up to normal diffusion for interacting disordered and kicked atomic systems. The door is open to test these theoretical results experimentally, and to attack similar computational quests in higher space dimensions
