Fault-tolerant quantum computation in the 21st century

Friday September 18, 2020
3:30 pm

 Presenter:  Daniel Gottesman Perimeter Institute Fellow
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  Experimentalists are getting better and better at building
qubits, but no matter how hard they try, their qubits will never be
perfect. In order to build a large quantum computer, we will almost
certainly need to encode the qubits using quantum error-correcting
codes and encode the quantum circuits using fault-tolerant protocols.
This will eventually allow reliable quantum computation even when the
individual components are imperfect. I will review the current state
of the art of quantum fault tolerance and discuss progress towards
answering the most important questions that will enable large
fault-tolerant quantum computers.
