January 20, 2021: At this NQN online seminar, Dartmouth College professor of physics James D. Whitfield will discuss efforts to apply quantum computing to the Hartree-Fock method.
December 10, 2020: Gabriel Perdue will present on quantum decoherence and fundamental, high-energy physics experiments using quantum technology.
December 3, 2020: Dr. Koji Terashi will present early explorations of quantum computing in the field of High-Energy Physics and related scientific disciplines.
November 25, 2020: Gradient descent is a popular algorithm in machine learning and optimization and finds many applications in theory and in practice. Microsoft Quantum Senior Researcher Robin Kothari asks, “Can quantum computers speed up this algorithm?” During this Northwest Quantum Nexus seminar, Kothari will discuss the meaning of the question, formalize the question in the context of prior work in this setting, and answer the question posed in this context.
November 23, 2020: In this UW Physics Colloquium, Professor Tracy Northup from the University of Innsbruck Institute for Experimental Physics will discuss the special role that optical cavities can play as quantum interfaces, or as bridges between quantum light and quantum matter.
