Demystifying Quantum Computing Technology

Speaker:  Aswani Kumar Cherukuri – Vellore, India
Topic(s):  Applied Computing


As the Moore’s law has reached the maximum pivot point, Conventional Computing is at the saturation levels in terms of achieving more computational capability.  Further, there are several computational problems that are hard to be solved by the conventional computers.  Quantum computing technology provides an exponentially larger computation space and power derived from quantum mechanics principles such as superposition, entanglement, interference, coherence.  With these principles, quantum computing provides radically different solutions to the computational problems and even solve the problems that are not tractable to the conventional computers. Due to these reasons, research in quantum computing is fascinating curious minds of researchers in several disciplines.  

Over the past few years, researchers have achieved several milestones in hardware, software and algorithms that are necessary in building quantum computing systems. Similarly, in the recent past, several technical articles and news items are published narrating the development of small scale quantum computers that are operating with few Q-bits.   It is expected that commercial quantum computers would be available in few years.  While quantum computers can not completely replace conventional computers, they can provide their services where the problems are not tractble for conventional computers.  

This lecture provides a detailed understanding on quantum computing, building blocks of quantum computers, properties, implications & applications of the quantum computing technology.  Further, it provides insights into various conditions and challenges in developing large scale quantum computing systems that can solve practical problems.  Also this lecture discuss the limitations and open problems of the technology.
