QuAIL Team Presenting Multiple Talks at American Physics Society March Meeting

Members of the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QuAIL) will be participating in several talks the week of March 14 at the American Physics Society March Meeting in Chicago, Illinois. Talks span multiple collaborative research efforts in areas of quantum theory, modeling, error-correction, benchmarking, analysis, compilation, optimization and simulation methods.

HybridQ: A Hybrid Simulator for Quantum Circuits

Hardware-Efficient Quantum Optimization Layered Algorithms and Experiments

Population dynamics theory for noisy random circuits: out-of-time ordered correlators and circuit fidelity

Benchmarking the Operation of Quantum Heuristics and Ising Machines: Scoring Parameter Setting Strategies on Real World Optimization Applications

Characterizing the statistics of the qubit frequency noise

Diagrammatic Analysis for Parameterized Quantum Circuits

Quantum Annealing for the Fermi-Hubbard Model

BACKGROUND: QuAIL conducts theoretical and empirical analyses of quantum computing and annealing algorithms; and investigates their applications with challenging computational problems in areas such as Earth-science data understanding, air-traffic flow control, and autonomous decision-making.
