First proposed in the 1970s, quantum computing relies on quantum physics by taking advantage of certain quantum physics properties of atoms or nuclei that allow them to work together as quantum bits, or qubits, to be the computer's processor and memory. By interacting with each other while being isolated from the external environment, qubits can perform certain calculations exponentially faster than conventional computers.

Universal Variational Quantum Computation
28 Oct 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Jacob Biamonte
We show that the variational approach to quantum enhanced algorithms admits a universal model of quantum computation.
Machine Learning for Quantum Control
28 Oct 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Barry Sanders
We develop a framework that connects reinforcement learning with classical and quantum control, and this framework yields adaptive quantum-control policies that beat the standard quantum limit, inspires new methods for improving quantum-gate design for quantum computing, and suggest new ways to...
On Topological Quantum Computing
28 Oct 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Shawn Xingshan Cui
We give an introduction to the theory of topological quantum computing (TQC), which is an approach to realizing quantum computation with non-Abelian anyons.

Quantum Algorithmic Breakeven: on Scaling Up with Noisy Qubits
21 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Daniel Lidar
In this talk I will argue in favor of a different criterion I call "quantum algorithmic breakeven," which focuses on demonstrating an algorithmic scaling improvement in an error-corrected setting over the uncorrected setting. I will present evidence that current experiments with...
Quantum Information and Computation for Quantum Chemistry
14 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Sabre Kais
Recently, Purdue University received $1.5 million in National Science Foundation (NSF) funding to establish a research center to study quantum information science. The Center for Quantum Information and Computation for Chemistry will investigate information techniques used to gain novel...
Quantum Computers for Chemistry
13 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Kenneth R. Brown
In this talk, I will describe the current state of the art of chemistry on a quantum computer and explain why quantum error correction will likely be required for quantum computers to outperform conventional machines in this domain. I will present experimental results demonstrating chemistry...
