Computer-Aided Design for Quantum Computation
Moderator:
Robert Wille - Johannes Kepler Univ. Linz
Quantum computation is currently moving from an academic idea to a practical reality. The recent past has seen tremendous progress in the physical implementation of corresponding “quantum computers” -- also involving “big players” such as Google, IBM, Intel, Rigetti, Microsoft, and Alibaba. The corresponding devices promise substantial speedups over conventional computers for applications like quantum chemistry, optimization,machine learning, cryptography, quantum simulation, or systems of linear equations. The Computer-Aided Design (CAD) community needs to be ready for this revolutionizing new technology. While research on automatic design methods for quantum computers is currently underway, there is still far too little coordination between the CAD community and the quantum community. Consequently, many CAD approaches proposed in the past have either addressed the wrong problems, or failed to reach the end users. This special session is aiming for addressing these issues by providing talks covering both “sides”: techniques and ideas recently proposed within the CAD domain as well as current solutions and open challenges within the quantum domain.
