Understanding the computational power of quantum computersExport this event to calendar

IQC Alum Lecture Series: Robin Kothari, Microsoft Quantum

Join alum Robin Kothari as he shares his career journey and talks about current research.

In this Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) Alum Lecture, Robin will talk about his research path at IQC and after leaving IQC. Most of his work has been on understanding the power of quantum computers: Which computational problems can we solve more efficiently with (large, fault tolerant) quantum computers? And for which problems is there no point in using quantum computers? In recent years he has worked on quantum algorithms for problems in optimization, machine learning, and quantum simulation. He has also tried to pin down the quantum advantage of shallow quantum circuits and the power of quantum algorithms solving unstructured problems (or total functions).

The IQC Alum Lecture Series welcomes past students to share what they’ve been up to, highlighting career paths and quantum research.
