What are the barriers we will need to overcome to make quantum computing relevant for the real-world problem? Are they problems inherent in scaling physical systems to large numbers of well-controlled qubits? The need for quantum communications networks to allow modular and distributed systems? The limitations of existing programming languages or the difficulty of constructing new quantum algorithms? Probably, all of these. To explore these barriers and how they are being addressed, Horizon Quantum Computing launched a series of discussions with experts in each of these domains. Each Quantum Well discussion, we talk with two scientists putting their energy into tunnelling through these barriers to useful quantum computing. Hosted by Joe Fitzsimons and Si-Hui Tan from Horizon Quantum Computing.
Fault Tolerance and Error Correction
56:32The second episode in our series will focus on error mitigation, error correction and fault tolerance. In the first episode, we heard from leading experts about some of the challenges of building scalable quantum computing hardware, and they emphasised the need to actively suppress errors before they can overwhelm a computation. We now take a deeper dive into the challenges of achieving fault-tolerant quantum computation and discuss what progress is being made towards this goal.Our guests this episode are: John Preskill, Professor of Theoretical Physics at California Institute of Technology and Dave Bacon, Senior Staff Software Engineer at GoogleThe discussion is hosted by Joe Fitzsimons and Si-Hui Tan, CEO and CSO of Horizon Quantum Computing.
Quantum Hardware and Architecture
48:20Explore with us the barriers we will need to overcome to make quantum computing relevant for the real-world problem, in “Quantum Well” podcast by Horizon Quantum Computing. In this first discussion, we'll be addressing the elephant in the room, building scalable quantum processors, with two leading experts making an impact not just as scientists but also as founders of companies pushing the limits of computing technology: - Chris Monroe, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist of IonQ- John Morton, Founder and CTO of Quantum Motion The talk is hosted by Joe Fitzsimons, CEO of Horizon Quantum Computing, and moderated by Gwendolyn Regina.
