NOTE: THIS IS AN EARLY TIME SLOT SESSION - repeated on Thu Jun 2 at 3:30-4:30 pm ET. In this session, we will cover several features of the Qiskit open source development kit that will help you to be more productive and improve performance when programming quantum computers. This will include the Qiskit Runtime feature to run hybrid quantum-classical algorithms more efficiently. More details to come! Note that this is part 5 of a 6-session series on Quantum Computing on Apr 13/14, Apr 20/21, May 4/5, May 18/19, Jun 1/2, and Jun 15/16. The sessions are not prerequisites for each other, and are not recorded. We will provide reference links and do quick recaps of previous content as required, so if you miss an earlier session, you can still get value from subsequent sessions. Presenter: Sean Wagner Sean is a Research Scientist and a Quantum Technical Ambassador at IBM. When he's not programming and experimenting with Qiskit, Sean spends his time working with researchers at academic institutions and industry partners in Canada on projects involving high-performance computing, hardware acceleration, quantum computing, and data science and AI. Dr. Wagner holds a B.A.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, and M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Toronto.

NSF Workshop on Software-hardware Co-Design for Quantum Computing
Mon., Aug. 22, 2022, 8:00am-Wed., Aug. 24, 2022, 8:00pm (EDT/GMT-0400) [Start time local timezone converter]

NSF Workshop on software-hardware Co-Design for Quantum Computing This workshop will function as a hub to spur a large, synergistic, and convergent effort for building a common technological ecosystem that quantum-enabled technologies and classical technologies can live together for mutual benefit and progress in the long term. In this workshop, experts from both industry and academia will gather together and discuss the key challenges that need to be addressed for an end-to-end quantum computing infrastructure. In particular, we advocate the importance of taking a computer engineering perspective. We envision that classic computer engineering techniques (at both software and hardware levels) have the potential to enable transformative scientific and industrial progress for quantum computing. The key is to figure out the grand challenges in the new quantum context. This workshop is to help the computer engineering community better understand and focus on these grand challenges rather than incremental changes, form a stronger collaboration, and propose transformative ideas to achieve significant progress in quantum computing. To this end, experts will be invited to get together to report the latest research progress and discuss their visions of the critical challenges that need to be addressed in the near future and how to tackle these challenges in a synergistic manner.
