Understanding Quantum Computing Through Negative Probabilities
Abstract: Despite his tongue-in-cheek statement, “I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics,” Richard Feynman provided one of the clearest conceptual pictures of quantum behavior in terms of a path formulation of quantum mechanics. This talk will be about our perspective in understanding the quantum universe by starting from a probabilistic world. As Feynman observed some 40 years ago, the main difference between a probabilistic world and a quantum world can be traced to the idea that probabilities need to be generalized to involve negative (or even complex) values. We will show how this difference can be related to the recent groundbreaking demonstration of quantum advantage in engineered quantum computers. Finally, we will discuss some recent developments of probabilistic computers that can help accelerate the solution of computationally-hard problems.
