Robust Quantum Computers: Challenges, Solutions and Future Directions
Moderator:
Moinuddin Qureshi - Georgia Tech
Organizers:
Swaroop Ghosh - Pennsylvania State Univ., State college,
Anupam Chattopadhyay - Nanyang Technological Univ.
Robert Wille - Johannes Kepler University Linz
This special session will provide an in-depth treatment of the resilience of NISQ era quantum computers. The first talk will describe the holistic design flow of a quantum accelerator. The second talk will provide an overview of the Quantum Scientific Computing Open User Testbed (QSCOUT) developed at Sandia National Labs for trapped-ion qubits. It will also describe the implementation of the multi-channel dual tone modulation and control system in a Radio-Frequency System on a Chip (RFSoC) device. The third talk will cover compilation flows for quantum algorithms with focus on the correctness analysis. The fourth talk will introduce the use of Quantum Random Access Coding (QRAC) to map discrete features of a classifier efficiently into limited number of qubits for robust Variational Quantum Circuit (VQC) to speed up the training. The final talk will present compilation techniques for quantum approximate optimization algorithm to improve error resiliency.
