Event Description
Watch a video to find the room:

Join us for a social hour to discuss the exciting field of quantum computing. The discussion will be led by physicist Benjamin Lienhard who is a quantum computing practitioner. Food will be served at the very beginning of the event. Registration is required.

Quantum computers are anticipated to solve particular computational tasks, from factoring to molecular simulations, substantially faster than conventional computers. Depending on the task, such quantum computers need to be composed of hundreds to millions of quantum bits, the principal building blocks of a quantum processor. Present-day quantum processors comprise tens of qubits and are not yet able to execute any meaningful computations due to, among others, a lack of scalable and precise calibration and control techniques. In this workshop, I will introduce you to the theoretical concepts of quantum computing and discuss the challenges of realizing a useful quantum computer.
