21st Santa Clara Valley Industry Spotlight: On Quantum Computing

Please join us for the 21st Industry Spotlight session featuring two talks on the topic of Quantum Computing:

DATE: Tuesday, September 6th 2022, 6pm-7:30pm PT (Pacific Timezone)
REGISTER: https://forms.gle/VRa9mRidghcpbJow8

TALK TITLE 1: Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Engineering (and TAMO isn’t an option)
SPEAKER: Kirk Bresniker, Hewlett Packard Labs
SPEAKER SOCIAL MEDIA: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kirkbresniker

ABSTRACT: The motivation is clear: so many challenges we face as a species demand either an unprecedented ability to simulate and engineer at the scale where quantum mechanics dominate or they demand reasoning over constraints at the planetary scale.  Since Feynman pointed the way four decades ago, quantum computing has been a tantalizing possibility, a way to achieve breakthroughs we know conventional systems and algorithms will never be capable of.   Over the last five years there has been a dramatic increase globally in teams and funding dedicated to the hunt for ideal qubit and we’re seeing some amazing experiments.  But from Lab to Fab to Volume isn’t just “a matter of engineering”  and “TAMO” – “Then a Miracle Occurs” isn’t and option.  We’re facing  a series of physical, cyber-physical and software systems engineering challenges that we need to be working now.

TALK TITLE 2: A Computer Engineer’s Perspective on Quantum Computing
SPEAKER: Greg Byrd, NC State University
SPEAKER SOCIAL MEDIA: https://www.linkedin.com/in/gtbyrd

ABSTRACT: For a long time, quantum computing was an esoteric topic, primarily of interest to quantum physicists and theoretical computer scientists. In the last decade, a small group of computer architects started to work in the area, which slowly attracted interest from the computer systems community. Today, with the availability of functioning quantum computers, systems research is being recognized as a critical component for bring scalable, reliable quantum systems to reality. Through the lens of my own journey of discovery, approaching quantum as a computer engineer, this talk will explore the ways in which computing professionals can contribute to quantum computing through research, development, and education.

HOW-TO-ATTEND: We collect registrations using this form. Attendance is limited to 500, so please register if you do not want to miss the chance to attend. We will send instructions how to attend BY EMAIL shortly before presentation. (PLEASE DO NOT DOUBLE AND TRIPLE REGISTER)
