The 16th series of seminars organized by QRST. Speakers: Claire L. Edmunds and Sascha HeuBen / Lukas Postler. About this event Quantum Research Seminars Toronto consist of two 30 min talks about some Quantum Computation topic. Seminars are given by high-level quantum computing researchers with the focus on disseminating their research among other researchers from this field. We encourage to attend researchers regardless of their experience as well as graduate and undergraduate students with particular interest in this field. Basic notions on quantum computing are assumed, but no expertise in any particular subject of this field. In this 16th series of seminars, the speakers will be Claire L. Edmunds (University of Innsbruck) and Sascha Heu?en / Lukas Postler (RWTH Aachen University / University of Innsbruck). Their talks are titled "Error characterisation and reduction in trapped-ion quantum computers" and "Demonstration of fault-tolerant universal quantum gate operations", respectively. We will send a Zoom link to those who register for this event 2 days, 2 hours and 10 min before the event starts. The event recording, slides and chat history will be published in our Youtube channel and sent to the registered participants. Looking forward to seeing you all! ___________________________________________________________________ Talk 1: Title: Error characterisation and reduction in trapped-ion quantum computers Abstract: Quantum technology is a rapidly developing field across academia, government and industry that seeks to exploit the bizarre and unintuitive physics that occurs on microscopic scales. This technology will enable the exploration of a wide range of topics - from solving complex mathematical problems or simulating quantum properties underlying natural materials, to improving security by encoding and communicating information privately. When building quantum devices, the sensitivity that makes these systems so powerful is also the cause of their vulnerability to errors. The feasibility of current devices is limited by the requirement for high fidelity gates with low and uncorrelated errors between gates and qubits. As systems are scaled up in both the number of qubits and algorithm length, it becomes increasingly challenging to keep error rates low using hardware alone. Quantum control suppresses errors to a level that exceeds limitations set by physical hardware when using standard gate implementations. By characterising the errors affecting a quantum device and tailoring robust, dynamic control solutions, we are able to achieve superior performance compared to the baseline operation. In this presentation, I will demonstrate the identification, reduction and homogenisation of errors across a trapped-ion qubit register, reducing overhead and pre-conditioning the system for quantum error correction. About the speaker: Dr. Claire Edmunds works at the Universit?t Innsbruck in the Quantum Optics & Spectroscopy group, led by Professor Rainer Blatt. Claire specialises in quantum simulation and quantum control using trapped 40Ca+ ions. In 2021, Claire was awarded a research fellowship with the Erwin Schr?dinger Center for Quantum Science and Technology (ESQ) after completing her PhD in experimental quantum physics at the University of Sydney. Her works strives to improve the performance of quantum platforms in realistic laboratory conditions in the path to build reliable quantum computers and simulators. Talk 2: Title: Demonstration of fault-tolerant universal quantum gate operations Abstract: Quantum computers can be protected from noise by encoding the logical quantum information redundantly into multiple qubits using error correcting codes. When manipulating the logical quantum states, it is imperative that errors caused by imperfect operations do not spread uncontrollably through the quantum register. This requires that all operations on the quantum register obey a fault-tolerant circuit design which, in general, increases the complexity of the implementation. Here, we demonstrate a fault-tolerant universal set of gates on two logical qubits in a trapped-ion quantum computer. In particular, we make use of the recently introduced paradigm of flag fault tolerance, where the absence or presence of dangerous errors is heralded by usage of few ancillary 'flag' qubits. Experimental results are accompanied by numerical simulations based on a generic, architecture-agnostic error model. About the speaker: Sascha Heu?en is currently a Ph.D. student in the group Prof. Markus M ller at RWTH Aachen working in the field of fault-tolerant quantum error correction. Furthermore he was a visiting researcher at the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter at Caltech and he holds an M.Sc. from TU Dortmund. Lukas Postler is a Ph.D. student in the group of Prof. Rainer Blatt at the University of Innsbruck. His research is focused on quantum information processing applications in trapped-ion quantum processors. He holds an M.Sc. from the University of Innsbruck.

(Bipartite) Gaussian BosonSampling

selfURL Content Level: 500 (For Quantum Professional)
Gaussian boson sampling is a model of photonic quantum computing that has attracted attention as a platform for quantum devices capable of performing tasks that are out of reach of their classical counterparts. Most recent photonic quantum computational advantage experiments were performed within this Gaussian variant of bosonsampling, having observed events with over 100 photons and seriously challenged the capabilities of competing classical algorithms. Thus, there is significant interest in solidifying the mathematical and complexity-theoretic foundations for the hardness of simulating these devices. We show that there is no efficient classical algorithm to approximately sample from the output of an ideal Gaussian boson sampling device unless the polynomial hierarchy collapses, under the same two conjectures as the original bosonsampling proposal by Aaronson and Arkhipov. Crucial to the proof is a new method for programming a Gaussian boson sampling device such that the output probabilities are proportional to permanents of (submatrices of) an arbitrary matrix. This provides considerable flexibility in programming, and likely has applications much beyond those discussed here. We leverage this to make progress towards the goal of proving hardness in the regime where there are fewer than quadratically more modes than photons (i.e., in the high-collision regime). Our reduction suffices to prove that GBS is hard in the constant-collision regime, though we believe some ingredients of it can be used to push this direction further. ____________________________________________ Kind regards, Susane Calegari, Remigiusz Augusiak, Micha?

Speaker: Anekait Kariya Quantum Machine Learning Researcher at Bikash's Quantum || Quantum Computing || BITS Goa. Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/anekait-kariya-a55ab114a/ Machine learning and artificial intelligence has been transforming our lives for several decades. These techniques rely heavily on data to be able to make accurate predictions, but today global data is in the order of zettabytes which has started to become a limit to be processed by classical computers. Researchers from all over the world are turning to quantum computing for a solution, giving rise to the field of quantum machine learning (QML). Hope arising from the concept of quantum random access memory (QRAM) which provides exponential compression in representation of data. Here, we first look at the concept of quantum data and QRAM, then quantum kernel classifier and its circuit. Later we dwell into the quantum support vector machine (QSVM) algorithm and its circuit. We compute the efficiency of the QSVM circuit implementation for two datasets; 6/9 and banknote. We propose a general encoding procedure extending the QSVM circuit approach. We highlight the technical difficulties in applying the QSVM algorithm on current NISQ era devices. Lastly, we propose a new method, with shallow quantum circuits and enhanced efficiencies for both datasets. QML is an emerging field and cutting edge research is happening as we talk. We conclude by exciting viewers about open questions and challenges ahead, to make the quantum hype a reality soon.

NSF Workshop on software-hardware Co-Design for Quantum Computing This workshop will function as a hub to spur a large, synergistic, and convergent effort for building a common technological ecosystem that quantum-enabled technologies and classical technologies can live together for mutual benefit and progress in the long term. In this workshop, experts from both industry and academia will gather together and discuss the key challenges that need to be addressed for an end-to-end quantum computing infrastructure. In particular, we advocate the importance of taking a computer engineering perspective. We envision that classic computer engineering techniques (at both software and hardware levels) have the potential to enable transformative scientific and industrial progress for quantum computing. The key is to figure out the grand challenges in the new quantum context. This workshop is to help the computer engineering community better understand and focus on these grand challenges rather than incremental changes, form a stronger collaboration, and propose transformative ideas to achieve significant progress in quantum computing. To this end, experts will be invited to get together to report the latest research progress and discuss their visions of the critical challenges that need to be addressed in the near future and how to tackle these challenges in a synergistic manner.

Abstract: Describing a scalable protocol for optimizing the quantum cost of the 3-bit reversible circuits built using NCT library. This technique takes into account a group theory approach. The algorithm analyzes the equivalent quantum circuits obtained by decomposing the reversible circuit to its elementary quantum gates and then applies optimization rules to reduce the number of the used elementary quantum gates.
