Topic

Quantum computing: What it is and why measurement matters

Presenters

Lee Barford

Lee Barford is a Keysight Fellow and works at Keysight Laboratories. He has previously had senior technical roles at Agilent and at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories. He leads research to identify and apply emerging technologies in software, applied mathematics, and statistics to enable new kinds of measurements and increase measurement accuracy and speed.

Abstract

For the last year or so, there have been a number of stories in the technical press about universities' and companies' progress toward developing quantum computers. Often, these articles give a number of quantum bits (qubits) that the researchers have built. This talk will describe what drives interest in quantum computing, what is a qubit, and what advantages and disadvantages quantum computing has compared to classical computing. It will also discuss why measurement plays a key role in a many operation of proposed types of quantum computer.
