Machine Learning for Quantum 2021 The last few years have seen a fast increase in the complexity of quantum technologies. In this context, recent groundbreaking experimental work has started to highlight the potential of advanced signal processing, such as machine learning and real-time adaptive techniques to speeding up, scaling up, and opening up new quantum technologies. The goal of this online conference, taking place March 1-5, 2021, is to bring together quantum physicists with experts in computer science and machine learning, to tackle these challenges together. Please find the conference program here. This online conference is centered around three questions, which we will address over five days of tutorials, talks and discussions: Q1 - how can a quantum sensor optimally extract information about its environment? Q2 - how can we achieve fully automatic calibration and operation of multi-qubit circuits? Q3- how can machine learning improve the performance of quantum algorithms for quantum chemistry? This event is organised as a satellite Photonics Online Meetup (POM). http://photonicsonlinemeetup.org/ Our approach is, however, platform-agnostic, and we target all quantum technology implementations.

Here, we present a hybrid quantum-classical algorithm, called variational fast forwarding (VFF), for decreasing the quantum circuit depth of QSs. VFF seeks an approximate diagonalization of a short-time simulation to enable longer-time simulations using a constant number of gates. Our error analysis provides two results: (1) the simulation error of VFF scales at worst linearly in the fast-forwarded simulation time, and (2) our cost function's operational meaning as an upper bound on average-case simulation error provides a natural termination condition for VFF. We implement VFF for the Hubbard, Ising, and Heisenberg models on a simulator. In addition, we implement VFF on Rigetti's QC to demonstrate simulation beyond the coherence time. Finally, will present recent extensions that improve upon VFF. Based on joint work with Zoe Holmes, Joseph Iosue, Lukasz Cincio, Patrick J. Coles & Andrew Sornborger from Los Alamos National Lab. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41534-020-00302-0 Please contact Subhasree Patro or Jop Briet for the link.

Purification and entanglement routing on complex quantum network architectures

selfURL Content Level: 400 (For Quantum Ready)
Our speaker for this meetup is Michelle Victora, PhD. Abstract: We present an approach to purification and entanglement routing on complex quantum network architectures, that is, how a quantum network equipped with imperfect channel fidelities and limited memory storage time can distribute entanglement between users. We explore how network parameters influence the performance of path-finding algorithms necessary for optimizing routing and, in particular, we explore the interplay between the bandwidth of a quantum channels and the choice of purification protocol. Finally, we demonstrate multi-path routing on various network topologies with resource constraints, in an effort to inform future design choices for quantum network configurations. Our work optimizes both the choice of path over the quantum network and the choice of purification schemes used between nodes. We consider not only pair-production rate, but optimize over the fidelity of the delivered entangled state. We introduce effective heuristics enabling fast path-finding algorithms for maximizing entanglement shared between two nodes on a quantum network, with performance comparable to that of a computationally-expensive 'brute-force' path search. Reference : "Purification and Entanglement Routing on Quantum Networks" https://arxiv.org/pdf/2011.11644.pdf Bio: Michelle received her undergraduate degree in Physics from MIT and her MS and PhD from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She spent her graduate years working in quantum optics and quantum information, spending half her time building a robust all-optical quantum memory, and the other half shooting single photons into the eyes of eager volunteers. The work being presented here was done while working as a Research Software Engineer at Aliro Quantum Technologies, a Quantum Networking company in the Greater Boston area.

Wednesday, 10 March 2021 at 9am ET Registration Coming Soon Abstract The qubits in a quantum computer, once they are assembled in place and ready to operate, are inert and in their ground state. To execute a quantum circuit, we must send an intricate and complex sequence of pulses and perform measurements that will determine the state of the qubits. All of this is accomplished using the quantum hardware controller. In this class, we will see how the hardware controller fits into the quantum stack, provide examples on how various quantum gates are translated to pulses, and discuss the evolution of the quantum hardware controller from its roots using lab test equipment into the sophisticated machines that are being built and used today. In particular, we will focus on the OPX, the unique controller offered by quantum machines. Then, we will discuss: (1) the various design and architecture challenges that go into building quantum hardware controllers and (2) why it is essential (a) to build an entirely new classical processing architecture from the ground up in order to maximize the potential of the quantum hardware controller and (b) to create specialized programming languages for pulse level control. We will also demonstrate an example with a particular pulse language named: QUA.

Abstract: Promising areas for near-term quantum applications are computationally expensive, wide-spread, important to practical applications and perhaps noisy in their own right. Artificial intelligence fits those criteria. Promising areas for machine learning applications demand small compact models for large and clearly labeled data sets. Quantum algorithms fit this description. Looks like a perfect match! What is missing? A sound framework for intuitive development of quantum software. Short Bio: Thomas Gabor is a researcher at the chair for mobile and distributed computing at LMU Munich. As member of the QAR-Lab he is working on quantum software since 2017. His other research interests include artificial intelligence, optimization and other areas of natural computing.

One could easily be forgiven for thinking that the process of quantum teleportation must be so enormously complicated that only the top echelon of PhD students and college professors can keep pace with the technology!! The reality, however, is that if you have a passing knowledge of the Bell State and four of the most basic quantum gates: Hadamard, CNOT, X and Z -then you already have everything you need to follow the process. The actual mechanics of instantly transporting 'something' thousands of miles away, is surprisingly simple. Quantum Entanglement is doing all the work, not you!! Join me for a one hour session (45min presentation, 15min Q&A) and you'll never be confused by Quantum Teleportation again!!

selfURL Content Level: 400 (For Quantum Ready)
quantum science seminar #39: quantum gases It is thought that the rapid expansion of the early universe resulted in the spontaneous production of cosmological particles. The latter evolved into the patterns in the cosmic microwave background visible today. The analogue of cosmological particle creation in a quantum fluid could provide insight, but an observation was not achieved previously. This talk presents our observation of analogue cosmological particle creation in a 3-dimensional quantum fluid of light. The process is seen to be spontaneous, and in close quantitative agreement with the quantum-field theoretical prediction. We find that the long-wavelength particles provide a window to early times, and we apply this principle to the cosmic microwave background. This work introduces a new quantum fluid, as cold as an atomic Bose-Einstein condensate. references J. Steinhauer, M. Abuzarli, T. Aladjidi, T. Bienaime, C. Piekarski, W. Liu, E. Giacobino, A.

Presented by Aroosa Ijaz, Xanadu Linear algebraic methods for machine learning, such as kernel methods, operate by embedding data points as vectors in a high dimensional vector space, and by applying methods of linear algebra to classify and to discriminate between embedded clusters of data. Quantum mechanics represents a natural setting for enacting such linear algebraic machine learning methods. When data points are embedded as quantum states, we naturally end up using vectors that live in high-dimensional vector spaces. In this session, we will talk about the power of quantum embeddings for machine learning and how the way we encode data might carry a lot of weight in the performance of quantum learning models. As an example, we will see that the performance of quantum classifiers can be completely determined by the quantum feature map that performs the embedding.

Title: Towards Quantum Artificial Intelligence Abstract: Promising areas for near-term quantum applications are computationally expensive, wide-spread, important to practical applications and perhaps noisy in their own right. Artificial intelligence fits those criteria. Promising areas for machine learning applications demand small compact models for large and clearly labeled data sets. Quantum algorithms fit this description. Looks like a perfect match! What is missing? A sound framework for intuitive development of quantum software. Short Bio: Thomas Gabor is a researcher at the chair for mobile and distributed computing at LMU Munich. As member of the QAR-Lab he is working on quantum software since 2017. His other research interests include artificial intelligence, optimization and other areas of natural computing.

selfURL Content Level: 400 (For Quantum Ready)
quantum science seminar #41: quantum gases A system of ultracold atoms in an optical lattice is an ideal quantum simulator of a strongly correlated quantum many-body system [1]. Ultracold fermions with an enlarged spin symmetry of SU(N) offer novel possibilities of quantum simulation [2]. In particular, recent theories for an SU(N) Fermi-Hubbard model predict novel quantum magnetisms. I will present our study of an SU(N=6) Fermi-Hubbard model by working with ultracold two-electron atoms of ytterbium. By developing an all-optical means of singlet-triplet oscillation, we successfully detect nearest-neighbor spin correlations in various lattice geometries. Importantly, this enlarged spin symmetry of SU(N) is a powerful tool to lower the temperature of atoms in an optical lattice, known as a Pomeranchuk cooling effect. The detailed comparison between theory and experiment allows us to infer the realization of a lowest temperature of cold-atom Fermi-Hubbard model in one dimension [3]. I will also present the experiments for realizing a novel four-body entangled state of SU(4)-singlet in a plaquette lattice configuration and the quantum magnetism in an open dissipative Fermi-Hubbard system. references C.

Presented by Wenjun Hou, Jesuit High School / Portland State University The Knapsack Problem is a prominent problem that is used in resource allocation and cryptography. Wenjun's project presents an oracle and a circuit design that verifies solutions to the decision problem form of the Bounded Knapsack Problem. This oracle can be used by Grover Search to solve the optimization problem form of the Bounded Knapsack Problem. This algorithm leverages the quadratic speed-up offered by Grover Search to achieve a quantum algorithm for the Knapsack Problem that shows improvement with regard to classical algorithms. The quantum circuits were designed using the Microsoft Q# Programming Language and verified on its local quantum simulator. The project also provides analyses of the complexity and gate cost of the proposed oracle. The work in this project is the first such proposed method for the Knapsack Optimization Problem.
