From Near Term Quantum Processors to Modernizing C++ for Quantum-Classical Computing, Annual APS Meeting is Stacked
Quantum Bits: Q-Ctrl, D-Wave Start News Flow on Eve of APS March Meeting
Points to note…
+ The annual trickle of quantum computing news during the lead-up to next week’s APS March Meeting 2020 has begun. Yesterday D-Wave introduced a significant upgrade to its quantum portal and tool suite, Leap2. Today quantum computing start-up Q-Ctrl announced the beta release of its ‘professional-grade’ tool Boulder Opal software claiming 10-100X improvements in error reduction and hardware stability.
+ This year’s meeting is again packed with QC presentations. Here are a very few of the quantum computing topics and their presenting organizations along with links to the talks’ abstracts. (Many organization have several talks.
- Rigetti Computing – Design Considerations for Near-term Quantum Processors
- IonQ – Efficient Arbitrary Simultaneously Entangling Gates on a trapped-ion quantum computer
- Google – Demonstration of a large-scale quantum chemistry calculations using the Sycamore quantum processor
- Microsoft – Optimizing Clifford gate generation for measurement-only topological quantum computation with Majorana zero modes
- Q Ctrl – Robust and optimal control for SC qubits, two-qubit gates, and circuits
- D-Wave (and NASA) – APath Towards Obtaining Quantum Advantage in Training Classical Deep Generative Models with Quantum Priors*
- IBM – A Hybrid Quantum-Classical Algorithm for Training Quantum Boltzmann Machines
- ORNL – Extending Modern C++ for Heterogeneous Quantum-Classical Computing
+ No doubt more quantum news is coming. The American Physical Society’s annual March Meeting, being held in Denver this year, always features a heavy dose of quantum computing research.
