GEORGIA TECH QUANTUM ALLIANCE GUEST LECTURE
Designing algorithms for near-term quantum computers
Omar Shehab – IonQ
November 15, 2019 | 11am - 12:00pm | Marcus Nanotechnology Building 1117-1118
Abstract: Noisy-intermediate scale quantum (NISQ) computers are currently being built at a number of places including academia and industry. A NISQ computer, capable of executing first proof-concept and then increasingly expensive quantum algorithms, will pave the way to build fault-tolerant errorcorrected (FTCC) quantum computers. While algorithms designed to practically run on FTCC quantum computers come with rigorously proven advantage over their classical counterparts, the advantage is still not fully clear for the NISQ computers. Nevertheless, strong promises are being made in recent research on NISQ algorithms.
This talk will review the complexity theory aspect of the quantum supremacy experiments. It will also introduce the hybrid quantum computational chemistry algorithms and explore a number of ways to improve it. Similar review will be conducted for the quantum operations research algorithms and quantum machine learning algorithms. The challenges for developing algorithm for the future NISQ quantum computer will also be discussed. Finally, I will also try to comment on how the academia should prepare for the upcoming quantum revolution.

In this talk, I will present an in vitro hiPSC-CM-based platform to study the tissue-level properties of engineered human myocardium.
In this work, we employed an integrated laboratory and field measurement approach to investigate how emissions from human activities (e.g., SO2, NOx) interact with emissions from trees in the formation of SOA.
Nano@Tech is an organization comprised of professors and graduate and undergraduate students from Georgia Tech and nearby academic institutions, as well as professionals from the corresponding scientific community that are interested in nanotechnology.
ECE Ph.D. student Shruti Lall was chosen for the Best Poster Award at the 11th ACM Wireless of the Students, by the Students, and for the Students (ACM S3) Workshop, held October 21, 2019 at Los Cabos, Mexico.
Five different types of solar cells fabricated by research teams at the Georgia Institute of Technology have arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) to be tested for their power conversion rate and ability to operate in the harsh space environment as part of the MISSE-12 mission. One type of cell, made of low-cost organic materials, has not been extensively tested in space before.
IEN is home to one of the sixteen sites of the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI). The NNCI was initiated by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2015 to provide researchers from academia, industry, and government access to university user facilities with leading-edge fabrication and characterization tools, instrumentation, and expertise within all disciplines of nanoscale science, engineering and technology.
IEN, in partnership with the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) in Greensboro, NC, created the Southeastern Nanotechnology Infrastructure Corridor (SENIC)providing research and educational resources to students, researchers, and educators in the southeast US and beyond. In addition, IEN serves as the Coordinating Office for the NNCI network.
