Description

What is the role of Architecture and Software Researchers in making Quantum Computing practical?

Margaret Martonosi, Director of the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education, Princeton University

In the past 3-5 years, Quantum Computing (QC) has reached an interesting and im-portant inflection point. For decades, quan-tum computing research was comprised of very abstract mathematical algorithms development “up high” that demonstrated some potential for future impact, and physics device demonstrations “down low” that were modest in size but that offered some hope for eventual implementations. However, with prominent QC algo-rithms like Shor’s factoring algorithm need-ing roughly a million times more physical quantum bits (qubits) than successful implementations currently provide, there has been a cavernous gap between algorithm and implementation. What is needed now are computer scientists to develop the crucial intermediate tool flows, abstraction layers, and programming languages that will help quantum computing scale through the current so-called NISQ (noisy, interme-diate-scale quantum) era.

Please join us to learn new approaches for optimal and near-optimal spatial-temporal placement of Quantum Computing (QC) algorithms onto real systems, and more broadly about the role that computer architecture, compiler and programming languages researchers must play in order for QC to reach its full potential.
