Jointly with the Quantum Computation and Information Seminar
What’s next after Moore’s law: quantum computing
(University of California and Google Inc.)
Date and time: Friday 25 September 2015, at 14:00
Location: VA2, Civil Engineering Building, IST, Lisbon
As microelectronics technology nears the end of exponential growth over time, known as Moore’s law, there is a renewed interest in new computing paradigms. I will discuss recent research at UCSB on superconducting quantum bits, as well as our recent start at Google to build a useful quantum computer to solve machine learning problems. Two qubit experiments will be highlighted, one to simulate a chemical reaction that finds a cross section, and a second to extend the lifetime of a qubit state using quantum error correction.

TECHDAYS Aveiro is organised by Instituto de Telecomunicações, Universidade de Aveiro, INOVARIA, TICE.pt and the Aveiro Municipality and will be held at Aveiro Expo, in Aveiro, Portugal, on September 17 and 18, 2015. The Conference is intended to be an international forum for the exchange of information among universities, research units, service providers, operators and manufacturers, on recent technical issues in telecommunications.
