Canada 150 Research Chair in Theoretical & Quantum Chemistry
Department of Chemistry
University of Toronto
Dr. Aspuru-Guzik is an expert in machine learning, quantum computing and chemistry. He and his research group work at the interface of theoretical chemistry with physics, computer science, and applied mathematics.
Light refreshments will be provided in PHY 145.
We are in the NISQ era of quantum computing. NISQ stands for “Near-term intermediate-scale quantum computer”. These machines are not error corrected and have of the order of tens of quantum bits. In this talk, I will discuss a family of quantum algorithms that are promising applications for these devices that my group and others have developed. I will discuss potential applications for the simulation of chemistry and materials and quantum machine learning.
