Quantum Computing: A high level overview of the ten things you need to know

 

Featuring Simone Severini, Director, Quantum Computing, Amazon Web Services (AWS); Professor of Physics of Information, University College London (UCL)

 

Quantum computers promise to solve some problems that are currently beyond the reach of digital computers and can do so more efficiently when qubits (quantum bits) are used to perform the calculations.

Many unknowns remain: How should we build such a machine so that it can handle big problems, useful problems of practical importance? How can we scale it to thousands and millions of qubits while maintaining precise control over fragile quantum states and protecting them from their environment? And what customer problems should we design it to tackle first? What is the timeline?

This presentation will consist of a high-level overview of Quantum Computing and its potential use cases. Amazon Braket, the AWS’s quantum computing cloud service, will be highlighted  as well as activities at the AWS Center for Quantum Computing at Caltech, and the work of the Amazon Quantum Solutions Lab, the AWS professional services team.  Quantum computers promise to solve some problems that are currently beyond the reach of digital computers and can do so more efficiently when qubits (quantum bits) are used to perform the calculations.
