Colloquium featuring Isaac Chuang - MIT
The three main branches of quantum algorithms, for simulation, search, and factoring, hold historically disparate origins. Today, we can now understand and appreciate all of these as being instances of the quantum singular value transformation algorithm of Gilyen, Su, Low, and Weibe. This unified framework, and the surprisingly universal role of single-qubit dynamics, open doors to many new quantum algorithms and opportunities for quantum advantage.
The recording is now available online.
Join us for casual conversations with quantum researchers.
Chris Ferrie - Tuesday, December 15, 7:00 p.m.
We welcome Chris Ferrie of the University of Technology Sydney and Centre for Quantum Software and Information for our fifth Fireside Chat. Ferrie received his PhD in Applied Mathematics from IQC in 2012.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
