Quantum computing leverages quantum physics to take computing in new directions. Several significant applications that will be accelerated by quantum computing include cryptography and advanced physical/scientific computing. This talk will present an overview of the current state of quantum computing, present research directions, and important unsolved problems.
This event is co-sponsored by the IEEE OC Computer Society and the IEEE OC Solid State Circuits Society.
