What is quantum supremacy and did Google do it?

Thursday November 21, 2019
3:30 pm


 Presenter:  Elizabeth Crosson and Tameem Albash (University of New Mexico)
 Series:  CQuIC Seminars
 Abstract:  The Google Quantum AI team has recently published their work [Nature 574, 505–510 (2019)] detailing their demonstration of quantum supremacy on their 53 qubit ‘Sycamore’ processor, heralding (perhaps) a new era in quantum computing. But what is ‘quantum supremacy’, did Google actually achieve it, and what are the implications of this demonstration? In this forum, we hope to provide a general overview of these questions and our answers to them, with hopefully plenty of time for discussions and more questions.
