Quantum Gravity in 2 Dimensions and the Conservation of Information

selfURL Content Level: 500 (For Quantum Professional)
Barry McFarland will lead the session. Recent proofs that information escapes in Hawing Radiation used a simple toy model to base their arguments from. This toy model goes by the name of JT Gravity (Jakiw-Teitelboim Gravity). This is a model of 2D gravity which can be unambiguously quantized, since gravitons in this theory have no dynamical degrees of freedom. The model is tractable, and has some key features which are meant to carry over into a higher dimensional theory of quantum gravity. This talk will be more technical than my previous talks. There is no way around it if one is interested in more than a qualitative picture of why there has been such a fuss about the (claim about) Information Paradox having been solved. I will discuss the model, its action and quantization. Then I will mention what the SYK model is, and how the two models were combined into the holographic proof that information escapes from an evaporating Black Hole. As usual, there will be a discussion afterwards of the merits of these claims based upon the arguments presented. For the interested reader, here are some good papers to read: The Hilbert Space Tensor Factorization Problem and JT Gravity https://arxiv.org/pdf/1804.01081.pdf On 2-Dimensional Gravity https://physics.princeton.edu//archives/theses/lib/upload/Iliesiu_thesis.pdf: AdS2 Holography and the SYK Model https://arxiv.org/pdf/1711.08482.pdf

selfURL Content Level: 400 (For Quantum Ready)
Our first speaker of 2021 is Nikitas Stamatopoulos from Goldman Sachs. Abstract In this talk I will describe the results and methods used to perform the first end-to-end rigorous resource estimation for quantum advantage in financial derivative pricing, as presented in https://arxiv.org/abs/2012.03819 in a collaboration between Goldman Sachs and IBM. In this paper, we focus on the number of qubits and T-depth required to price derivative contracts of practical interest in the industry, where the end-to-end runtime and approximation errors are comparable to state-of-the-art classical Monte Carlo methods. We introduce a new method - the re-parameterization method - which allows loading stochastic processes on a quantum device resolving blocking issues inherent in previously proposed methods. Finally, we discuss the hardware progress still required for quantum advantage to be realized in practice. Bio Nikitas Stamatopoulos is a Vice President in the R&D Engineering Division at Goldman Sachs, with research focus on applications of quantum computing in finance. Prior to joining Goldman Sachs, he was a quantitative researcher at JPMorgan Chase for 7 years, focusing on HPC solutions for quantitative problems in derivatives pricing and portfolio optimization, and from 2018 to 2020 leading the investment bank's research in quantum computing. He holds a PhD in Physics from Dartmouth College with focus in Field Theory and Cosmology.

Zoom: https://tinyurl.com/ctp-quantum Abstract: Since EPR and Bell, we associate quantum theory with non-locality. In this talk I present that this is not necessarily the case. I will go through the Deutsch-Hayden [1] formalism based on the Heisenberg picture to explain how quantum physics is a local-realistic theory at a structural level, and that all quantum phenomena has a local nature. The crucial point in this point of view is that the elements of reality are not described by numbers, rather with algebraic structures. Also, I will expose the main ideas and results from Raymond-Robichaud & Brassard [2] focussing on the theorem that states that any theory with reversible dynamics that follows the no-signalling theory is a local realistic theory (at a structural level). I will present these concepts in fermionic theory, where there is this halo of further non-locality in the system due to the -1 phase acquisition when two fermions are exchanged. I will explain the deduction of the fermionic descriptors and their relation to the Raymond-Robichaud formalism. If time allows for it I will present some brief examples in the fermionic context on how the descriptors allow one to give a completely local account of all quantum phenomena. References: [1] D.

Speaker: Jan-Rainer Lahmann, IBM Quantum Ambassador & Qiskit Advocate, Member of the IBM Academy of Technology In this meetup, Jan-Rainer Lahmann will present and discuss the details of the RasQberry project. The RasQberry project: Exploring Quantum Computing and Qiskit with a Raspberry Pi and a 3D Printer Quantum Computing - which is based on Quantum Mechanics - is a complex technology that is hard to understand for most people. Completely new algorithms - and even new thinking - is needed to exploit the potential power of upcoming quantum computers. This requires new approaches to teach Quantum Computing in engaging and understandable ways for IT experts, developers and young academics. RasQberry integrates Qiskit, a Raspberry Pi (the full range from Pi 4 down to a Pi Zero) and a 3D printed model of IBM Q System One to explore various state of the art technologies and create a tool that can be used in meetings, meetups, demo booths, etc. A spectrum of Quantum Computing demos and Serious Games for Quantum Computing (that illustrate superposition, interference and entanglement) will be made available on this device for an engaging introduction to Quantum Computing. ? The project is on GitHub http://rasqberry.org ? Part of it (the SW install, not the 3D model) is published on medium.com: https://medium.com/qiskit/rasqberry-quantum-computing-is-the-coolest-project-for-raspberry-pi-3f64bec5a133 If some of you are interested in building a RasQberry themselves or even contribute to the opensource project - we could have another session 4-6 weeks later to help with the actual build and share experiences within the team. Connect & password information will be emailed to registered participants prior to meeting

Nir also a co-organizer of the MESA Quantum Computing Meetup! Abstract: Within the next few years, quantum computing is projected to make tectonic changes in huge industries. In order to be prepared for the quantum-era, leading companies have already entered the field, trying to develop game-changing quantum algorithms for their needs. Currently, quantum algorithms development is an almost impossible task, as the quantum software stack is still in its infancy, and the programming is at the gate-level. The talk will focus on the quantum software stack, and how using a higher level of abstraction will enable the development of useful quantum algorithms.

Title; Provable private randomness from untrusted devices Speaker: Cameron Foreman, Researcher, CQC Abstract Randomness is required in many applications, from simulations to cryptography. It is essential that this randomness is unbiased and private, else, the results in simulations are meaningless and the keys used in cryptography are unsecure. But the question is, how do we know if the randomness we use has these properties? Device-independent randomness provides the solution to this question - giving provably unbiased and private randomness. In my talk I will present the different approaches to randomness generation (and ultimately, their limitations). I will then talk about a new approach - the idea of generating provable randomness with minimal assumptions - device independent randomness. Then, I will get into the technical details of how this is achieved in our device independent randomness and privacy amplification protocol. Finally, I will explain how this is adapted to be implemented on today's quantum computers - giving verifications impossible from any existing commercial random number generator. Bio: Cameron Foreman is a Quantum Cryptography Researcher at Cambridge Quantum Computing. He received his Masters degree in Mathematics from the University of Exeter, specializing in post-quantum public key cryptography, specifically protocols based on quantum walks. Since graduating, he has been researching quantum information theory - mainly in the area of device independent cryptography.

Speaker: Dr. Ahmed Younes Professor of Quantum Computing, Vice Dean for Education and Student Affairs Faculty of Science, Alexandria University, Egypt Abstract: Quantum computers are computational devices, which exploit quantum mechanical principles to do computation. Quantum computers promise to do computation more powerfully than by conventional computers. In this talk, the mathematical foundations and potential applications of quantum computers will be presented. Quantum computers arise as potential alternative for classical computers since the development in classical computers will come to an end by 2020 according to Moore's Law, where the size of the components will hit the quantum level. Mathematics comes in the heart of quantum computation, where development in quantum computers needs many fields in mathematics. Connection between various areas in quantum computing and different fields in mathematics will be presented. Monday February 15, 2021 6 - 7:30 pm GMT + 2 (Egypt) 8 - 9:30 pm GMT + 4 (UAE)
