Data@Breakfast: “What is your quantum advantage?”

December 6, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm UTC+0

Please note that this month’s breakfast will take place on the first Friday of December since it is the
last breakfast of the year!

This month’s talk is by Professor Francesco Petruccione titled: “What is your Quantum Advantage?”
A new quantum era is knocking at the doors of high-performance computing. In October this year, a
Research Team of Google published a paper in Nature entitled “Quantum supremacy using a
programmable superconducting processor”. For the first time, a quantum computer outperformed a
classical one for a particular, although not very practical, computation. Real-world applications of
quantum computing are imminent. What could a quantum computer do for you?
