Title: DSRP Seminar - A gentle introduction to quantum computing Date: Wednesday, 28 October Time: 12:00 (noon) Venue: Zoom, via this link Speaker: Dr John Abela Quantum computing is an area of study that focuses on the development of computing devices that are based on the principles of quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics is a theory that attempts to explain the nature and behaviour of energy and matter on the microscopic (atomic and subatomic) level. Quantum computers use a combination of Qubits (Quantum bits), and the quantum phenomena superposition and entanglement, to perform specific computational tasks. All this at a much higher efficiency than their classical counterparts. Quantum computers are not super-Turing powerful but they provide an exponential speed-up for certain NP-Hard problems and for specific use cases. Development of quantum computers is progressing at a fast pace with billions of dollars being poured into research and development. Quantum computing has important implications for areas such a cryptography and will completely revolutionise drug discovery and design. In the talk we will introduce the basic ideas of quantum mechanics and then give a brief overview of how quantum computers work. Attendees are kindly asked to register online. The Data Science Research Platform (DSRP) at the University of Malta conducts research in the interdisciplinary field of data science. The scope of the group is to use signal processing, machine learning and statistics to develop innovative techniques and to extract useful knowledge from various data sources in an effective manner to benefit the wider public.

The 6th series of seminars organized by QRST. Speakers: Tim Menke (Harvard & MIT) and Peter Johnson (Zapata Computing) About this Event Quantum Research Seminars Toronto consist of two 30 min talks about some Quantum Computation topic. Seminars are given by high-level quantum computing researchers with the focus on disseminating their research among other researchers from this field. We encourage to attend researchers regardless of their experience as well as graduate and undergraduate students with particular interest in this field. Basic notions on quantum computing are assumed, but no expertise in any particular subject of this field. In this 6th series of seminars, the speakers will be Tim Menke (Harvard & MIT) and Peter Johnson (Zapata Computing). Their talks are titled "Quantum computer-aided design: digital quantum simulation of quantum processors" and "Minimizing estimation runtime on noisy quantum computers", respectively. We will send a Zoom link to those who register for this event 2 days, 2 hours and 10 min before the event starts. The event recording, slides and chat history will be published in our Youtube channel and sent to the registered participants. Looking forward to seeing you all! ___________________________________________________________________ Talk 1: Quantum computer-aided design: digital quantum simulation of quantum processors With the increasing size of quantum processors, sub-modules that constitute the processor hardware will become too large to accurately simulate on a classical computer. Therefore, one would soon have to fabricate and test each new design primitive and parameter choice in time-consuming coordination between design, fabrication, and experimental validation. Here we show how one can design and test the performance of next-generation quantum hardware - by using existing quantum computers. Focusing on superconducting transmon processors as a prominent hardware platform, we compute the static and dynamic properties of individual and coupled transmons. We show how the energy spectra of transmons can be obtained by variational hybrid quantum-classical algorithms that are well-suited for near-term noisy quantum computers. In addition, single-and two-qubit gate simulations are demonstrated via Suzuki-Trotter decomposition. Our methods pave a new way towards designing candidate quantum processors when the demands of calculating sub-module properties exceed the capabilities of classical computing resources. Ref.: https://arxiv.org/abs/2006.03070 About the speaker: Tim Menke is pursuing a PhD in the field of quantum computing at Harvard and MIT, jointly advised by Alan Aspuru-Guzik and William Oliver. He obtained his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Physics from ETH Zurich, and previously conducted research on quantum microwave-to-optics conversion for his Master's thesis at JILA in Boulder, Colorado. Tim works at the intersection of computational modeling and experimental implementation of superconducting quantum processors. After employing classical optimization and quantum algorithms to design quantum hardware, he experimentally realizes such hardware in the lab. His main focus lies on the implementation of multi-qubit couplers for quantum simulation and quantum annealing applications. Talk 2: Minimizing estimation runtime on noisy quantum computers There is no evidence that NISQ algorithms such as VQE will outperform classical computers for problems of interest. This unfortunate fact urges us to ask: what new insights may be needed to achieve quantum advantage? Towards answering this question we attempt to reconcile two contrasting features of quantum computation: the power of deep-circuit quantum amplification and the reality of imperfect or noisy operating conditions. We present an estimation algorithm tailored to practical implementation by incorporating noise models into its design and optimizing for minimal runtime. We show simulations which demonstrate its advantage over existing techniques. Finally, we demonstrate the long-term impact of this technique for converting device improvement into algorithm performance. As the field of applied quantum computing navigates the evolving hardware, software, and algorithm landscape, these insights may help to find the shortest path to quantum advantage. Ref.: https://arxiv.org/abs/2006.09350 About the speaker: Peter Johnson is a co-founder and research team lead developing quantum algorithms at Zapata Computing. He received his PhD in quantum information science from Dartmouth College with Lorenza Viola. After graduating he moved to Harvard University to research near-term quantum algorithms as a postdoc in the group of Alan Aspuru-Guzik. Similar to his work as a postdoc, his team at Zapata works to discover promising paths to achieving quantum advantage.

Designing Variational Quantum Algorithms with Tequila

selfURL Content Level: 400 (For Quantum Ready)
We are happy to announce our fifth meeting, dedicated to Tequila! With QC5, we switch to a main talk + lightning talks and discussion format. Please propose or solicit a lightning talk as you RSVP! We'll start at 9:10 as usual with the introductions, and Alba will join us at 9:30am for the talk. We expect to run through about 10:30am and then have Q&A/discussion until 11am. In the last few years, we have witnessed the proliferation of quantum computing languages. Many companies and research groups have developed their own tools to construct, simulate, and experimentally implement quantum algorithms. This fact has also accentuated the lack of standardized methods to solve problems using quantum computing. Heuristics play a crucial role in the development of new methods resulting in high demand for flexible and reliable ways to implement, test, and share new ideas. Inspired by all these demands, we introduce Tequila, a development package for quantum algorithms in python designed for fast and flexible implementation of novel quantum algorithms such as electronic structure and other fields. Tequila operates with abstract expectation values that can be combined, transformed, differentiated, and optimized in a blackboard style fashion. On evaluation, the abstract data structures are automatically compiled to run on state of the art quantum simulators or interfaces. In this talk, I will introduce the Tequila package, explain its current features, and present several usage examples. Speaker: Alba Cervera Lierta did her doctoral studies in entanglement applications in quantum information at the University of Barcelona. She also worked on quantum algorithms for near-term applications at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. Her background includes particle physics phenomenology, multipartitie entanglement and quantum information foundations. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Alan Aspuru-Guzik group at the University of Toronto. She is working on variational quantum algorithms and computational tools for quantum simulation.

This seminar will be conducted remotely. To request the Zoom link, please send an email to: mipse-central@umich.edu Abstract: Matter at extreme pressures, temperatures, and densities characterizes a wide variety of natural and man-made phenomena, including interiors of Jovian size planets, hyper-velocity meteor impacts, the burning core of stars, thermonuclear burning inertial confinement fusion capsules. Matter at these conditions defines the exciting and challenging field of High Energy Density Physics (HEDP). Besides vast experimental resources, there exists a rich set of computational tools that model the micro to macro regimes of HEDP. Recently, there has been a resurgence in interest in using a 'simpler' approach to investigating HEDP based on quantum hydrodynamics. Quantum Hydrodynamics (QHD) has a long and interesting history, dating back to the first developments by Madelung and Bohm. In this talk, we discuss the historical and recent developments in QHD, including pitfalls, as applied to quantum many-body systems relevant to HEDP regimes. We will present three different approaches to deriving the QHD equations-Madelung, Bloch, and Wigner and discuss their pros and cons. Finally, the role that Rayleigh-Taylor hydrodynamic instabilities play is discussed within the QHD formalism. About the Speaker: Frank Graziani received a BS in physics from Santa Clara U., and a PhD in physics from UCLA. He was a postdoctoral fellow at U. Colorado and U. Minnesota working in cosmology and particle physics; and worked with NASA on exoplanet dynamics and star formation. Dr. Graziani joined Lawrence Livermore National Lab. in 1989 where he worked in radiation transport and plasma physics. He has held many leadership positions at LLNL, including group leader, V&V Leader, PI for LDRD-Strategic Initiatives, lead for the National Boost Initiative and Assoc. Division Leader for computational physics. He now directs the High Energy Density Sciences Center. He has won four DOE Defense Program Awards of Excellence, the LLNL Director's S&T Award and is a Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff. His research interests include the micro-physics of dense plasmas and HED education. Dr. Graziani is editor of two books on computational methods and a book on warm dense matter physics.

Presented by Robert Loredo, IBM Learning a new programming language is generally not too difficult a task nowadays, a few days reading the documentation, watching some YouTube tutorials and then of course building the usual "Hello World" application is the usual format. Why not follow the same process to learn how to program quantum computers? Sure, it is a completely different type of system from hardware to software, and not quite a lift and shift from classical system to quantum systems. But overall, the process to learn how to program quantum systems shouldn't be too different than learning a language, or learning a different musical instrument. In this talk we will review the various features of what is available on the IBM Quantum Experience to help you learn visually, and by some hands-on exercises to get you creating your own "Hello Quantum World" application!

Quantum Communications Technologies Live Webinar The internet is built on the world's current secure communications infrastructure. However, we know that aspects of this are under threat from the emergence of quantum computers. This vulnerability provides a driver for the engineering of new, future-proof, practical, secure communications -- with commercialisation potential and compatibility with existing infrastructure. Work is underway to deliver such technologies, by developing existing prototype quantum-secure technologies beyond their current limitations and combining these with new cryptographic techniques resistant to quantum computer threat. This work is establishing new, "quantum safe" communications technologies and services in the UK, feeding their future expansion, competitiveness, diversification and sustainability. Tim Spiller will explain the role of the Quantum Communications Hub, part of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme, in the development of these new technologies and services. Jonathan Legh-Smith will give BT's perspective on the commercial imperative for quantum-secured communications.

Every Quantum Expert worth anything will tell you two things... (1) The most powerful Quantum Computers are from Google, IBM, Honeywell of ~50 Qubits. (2) Nobody has a production grade Quantum Computer. Everyone has some erroneous tiny toys. So, for the first time we are doing public demo's of our ~million+ Logical Qubit Quantum Computer(s). We have a benchmark of sample problems. And we will showcase Quantum Supremacy using Random Circuit Sampling which Google took 200 secs, and claimed the worlds largest Supercomputers will take 10,000 years. We will demo the same in under 10 secs on the clock. We will explain how we built our Quantum Computers and what are their specs like Connectivity, Decoherence T1 & T2, Fidelity, Accuracy etc. Followed by a free for all Q&A. Ask anything you feel like we will try our best to answer it. If the Event is full you can probably find a Live Stream running at the same schedule on Youtube Live here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx5JXuP_i4rvBT-onJcolFw/featured If you want a private webinar for your large teams.

selfURL Content Level: 200 (For Quantum Climber)
The internet is built on the world's current secure communications infrastructure. However, we know that aspects of this are under threat from the emergence of quantum computers. This vulnerability provides a driver for the engineering of new, future-proof, practical, secure communications - with commercialisation potential and compatibility with existing infrastructure. Work is underway to deliver such technologies, by developing existing prototype quantum-secure technologies beyond their current limitations and combining these with new cryptographic techniques resistant to quantum computer threat. This work is establishing new, 'quantum safe' communications technologies and services in the UK, feeding their future expansion, competitiveness, diversification and sustainability. Tim Spiller will explain the role of the Quantum Communications Hub, part of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme, in the development of these new technologies and services. Jonathan Legh-Smith will give BT's perspective on the commercial imperative for quantum-secured communications. Time: 02:00 PM Greenwich Mean Time Duration: 1 hour This event is part of a series of events on Quantum Engineering hosted by the IET, further information about all events can be found on the event webpage.

There are huge expectations regarding its future capabilities - but for most people (including top IT experts) it is hard to understand how quantum computing 'really works', the principles that quantum algorithms are based on, and what its true potential will be for specific industries. This session will provide an introduction for the curious, who would like to learn, experience and understand quantum computing 'hands-on'.' 19:15 - 20:00 - Speakers Slot B: David Niehaus & Felix Paul - StoneOne AG: Quantum-Assisted Artificial Intelligence (QAI) 'In this talk, the field of QAI will be introduced. After giving an overview of the current research situation and applicability, the PlanQK consortium led by StoneOne will be discussed in particular. PlanQK (Platform and Ecosystem for Quantum-Assisted Artificial Intelligence) brings together 15 companies and universities and is the winner of the AI Innovation Competition of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. It provides both the foundations and the platform for building a community around quantum-assisted artificial intelligence. In addition, it provides easy access to expertise, algorithms and implementations/applications and can easily be integrated into customer systems.' If you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us. To reach us, you can use the inline chat of Meetup or our email addresses (jens.marre[at]dual-software.de & christopher.zachow[at]sva.de). The Meetup will be held in English.

We're very much looking forward to having a great scientific and inclusive event in November. Stay safe and best wishes, The Q-Turn organizers ****** end 7/31 update**** Q-turn is a unique international quantum information workshop series. Our core mission is to foster an inclusive community and highlight outstanding research that may be under-appreciated in other high-impact venues due to systemic biases. As researchers who value the power of education and collaboration, we aim to facilitate a dialogue in the community over issues that affect us as a society, collectively making progress to resolve them. For this reason, Q-turn holds an awareness program in addition to the focused quantum science program. Q-turn's awareness program promotes diversity, equity, inclusion, intersectionality, responsible research, workers' rights, as well as physical and mental health in quantum science and technology. Q-turn's quantum science program highlights top-quality experimental and theoretical work on quantum information technology and foundations. Researchers in these fields and intersecting ones are welcome to submit their work. The first edition of the workshop, Q-turn 2018, took place in Florian??polis, Brazil, and is going online with an international focus this year owing to the coronavirus pandemic. As organizers, it is our commitment to continue this mission and make Q-turn 2020 an event where every participant feels welcome.

LIVE DEMOS Of The Most Powerful Quantum Computer(s) In The World
Wed., Dec. 09, 2020, 9:00am-10:30am (GMT-0400) [Start time local timezone converter]
selfURL Content Level: 100 (For Quantum Explorer)
Every Quantum Expert worth anything will tell you two things... (1) The most powerful Quantum Computers are from Google, IBM, Honeywell of ~50 Qubits. (2) Nobody has a production grade Quantum Computer. Everyone has some erroneous tiny toys. So, for the first time we are doing public demo's of our ~million+ Logical Qubit Quantum Computer(s). We have a benchmark of sample problems. And we will showcase Quantum Supremacy using Random Circuit Sampling which Google took 200 secs, and claimed the worlds largest Supercomputers will take 10,000 years. We will demo the same in under 10 secs on the clock. We will explain how we built our Quantum Computers and what are their specs like Connectivity, Decoherence T1 & T2, Fidelity, Accuracy etc. Followed by a free for all Q&A. Ask anything you feel like we will try our best to answer it. If the Event is full you can probably find a Live Stream running at the same schedule on Youtube Live here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx5JXuP_i4rvBT-onJcolFw/featured If you want a private webinar for your large teams.

What? Shor's Algorithm watch party? What does that mean ? We've been learning about Quantum Cryptography the entire month of August and now we are on to CoCreation.(https://quantumcomputingindia.com/cryptography-august) What is CoCreation? Its a process through which a community learns. Hackathon/HackSeries sounds very brittle as a hack is never a sustainable solution. Who can attend? Anyone interested in contributing to #BreakRSA project. We start with understanding the Shor's algorithm then do a comparative study of its implementations across platforms then find ways to optimise the parameters under our control. When? 10-11 PM IST on Zoom - 8 & 9 September - 2020 Agenda: 1) 10-11 PM - 1 hour of the video by Qiskit Qummer School 2) 11-11:15 PM - Note Comparison RSVP here: https://forms.gle/8BqgGqwjsPpprG2R9 Come with popcorn & your fav note taking tool!
