Cloud quantum computing without giving up your secrets

Thursday December 14, 2017
3:30 pm

 Presenter:  Nick Menicucci, RMIT University
 Series:  CQuIC Seminars
 Abstract:  The first publicly-available large-scale quantum computers will undoubtedly be housed in central facilities and accessed by users remotely. In fact, small-scale examples of such "cloud quantum computing" already exist today (e.g., the IBM Quantum Experience). The sensitive nature of quantum computing applications means that most users would prefer a way to hide from the quantum server the nature of the computation being performed even when they themselves have no access to local quantum resources of their own. This talk describes one way to partially obscure a cloud-based quantum computation by exploiting flow ambiguity -- the natural flexibility of circuit design inherent to measurement-based quantum computing.
