About the speakers:

1. Speaker: Dr. Si-Hui Tan, CSO at Horizon Quantum Computing.

Title: Quantum Programming – Easy as A, B, C++.

Bio: Dr. Si-Hui Tan heads the research development for Horizon’s software that will compile classical code to be run on a quantum computer. She is an active researcher in the field of quantum information science for over 15 years, and has published extensively in top journals and conference proceedings. Si-Hui received a BSc in Physics from the California Institute of Technology and a PhD in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where she was the recipient of the prestigious MIT Presidential Fellowship. Prior to joining Horizon, Si-Hui was a research scientist at the Singapore University of Technology and Design, the Centre for Quantum Technologies, and the A*STAR Data Storage Institute.

Si-Hui is an active member of Zonta International, and a board member and treasurer of the Zonta Copenhagen Multicultural Club. Si-Hui was honoured as the silver winner for CTO of the Year at the WomenTech Global Awards 2020: a prize to recognize innovative and impactful technological leadership as head of global IT, while fostering diversity, inclusion and belonging.

2. Speaker: Dr. Yehuda Naveh, CTO at Classiq.

Title: Synthesizing Quantum Circuits.

Bio: Yehuda holds a Ph.D. in theoretical quantum physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, has been at Stony Brook University for four years, and at IBM Research for around twenty years. His research focuses on the intersecting aspects of theoretical physics, computer science, and quantum information and computation. Yehuda is currently the CTO of Classiq.

3. Speaker: Prof. Robert Rand, The University of Chicago.

Title: Quantum Programming Languages: What they are and what they could be.

Bio: Robert Rand an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Chicago, part of the Programming Languages Research Group and the Chicago Quantum Exchange. A developer of the QWIRE circuit language and the verified quantum compiler VOQC, his main interests lie in applying techniques from programming languages and formal verification to the domain of quantum computation. He is currently interested in error-correction, type systems, abstractions and alternative models for quantum computation.

4. Speaker: Dr. Costin Iancu, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Title: BQSKit - Scalable Synthesis of Resource Efficient Quantum Circuits.

Bio: Costin Iancu is a senior scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He has extensive experience in language design, code generation and optimization for large scale High Performance Computing systems. Lately, Costin has been fascinated by quantum synthesis. This turns out to be a very subtle area, where good contributions require simultaneous breakthroughs in Quantum Information Science and Computer Science.

During his career Costin has been instrumental in releasing widely used compiler infrastructures. The Berkeley Quantum Synthesis Toolkit (BQSKit) is currently one of the most powerful circuit generators for the NISQ era. The technology behind it is described in multiple Best Paper Award winners at top tier conferences.

5. Speaker: Dr. Sean Weinberg, QC Ware Corp.

Title: Quantum Algorithm Implementation with Turnkey Services.

Bio: Sean Weinberg, a staff scientist at QC Ware, is a quantum algorithm researcher heavily involved with QC Ware's commercial engagements, solutions, and software development. Prior to his work at QC Ware, Sean obtained a PhD from the UC Berkeley Center for Theoretical Physics and completed postdoctoral work at the UC Santa Barbara Department of Physics where he studied the quantum information theoretic structure of black holes and holographic aspects of quantum gravity.

6. Speaker: Silas Dilkes, Cambridge Quantum Computing.

Title: Running Better Experiment on Near Term Hardware - An Introduction to TKET.

Bio: Silas Dilkes has worked at Cambridge Quantum for four years and currently works as a Senior Software Engineer on TKET, a set of quantum programming tools for interfacing and running experiments on a range of quantum hardware.
