Benchmarking NISQ-era quantum processors

Friday December 7, 2018
3:30 pm


 Presenter:  Jay Gambetta, IBM T. J. Watson Research Center
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  As the field marches towards quantum advantage with near-term quantum processors, it becomes imperative to characterize, verify, and validate performance. An outstanding scientific challenge in the community is a scalable set of metrics or experiments which can shed light on the usability of a device for near-term algorithms. Moreover, it becomes critical to explore techniques to extend the computational reach of noisy systems, be it through understanding underlying non-idealities, or more efficient circuit compilation. In this talk I will review the work we are doing at IBM to develop a “Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum” (NISQ ) device and our recent results.
 Host:  Ivan Deutsch
 Location:  Room 125, Dane Smith Hall
 

Refreshments will be available before the colloquium, at 03:15 pm, in in the lobby of Dane Smith Hall.
