Quantum Computing: A Tutorial Survey

January 31, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Sponsored by: IEEE Boise Computer Society

Over the past several decades, from Richard Feynman’s Simulating Physics with Computers to recent quantum science conferences. quantum computing has evolved to seek answers to the question: can we gain some advantage by processing, transmitting, and storing information encoded in systems that exhibit unique quantum attributes? We now know the answer is to this question is  yes  we can and probably should, as many global collaborations and various research groups have demonstrated.  The endgame: building a quantum solution.  Quantum computing could dramatically improve computational efficiency for particular tasks. A number of physical systems, spanning much of modern physics, are being developed for quantum computation.  We will review the fundamentals and examine the various components being considered as part of quantum computing, including the QC venue at SC17.

Speaker(s): Randy Rannow of Silverdraft Supercomputing

Event is open to the public at no charge.

Snacks will be provided.
