Building large-scale quantum computers

September 3, 2010

Dr. Suzanne Gildert will speak on “Building large-scale quantum computers: Fundamentals, technology and applications” at Teleplace, September 4, 10 a.m. PST.

“The talk will explain why quantum computers are useful, and also dispel some of the myths about what they can and cannot do,” she says. “It will address some of the practical ways in which we can build quantum computers and give realistic timescales for how far away commercially useful systems might be.”

If you don’t have have a Teleplace accounts with teleXLR8, there are a limited number of seats available — contact Guilio Prisco.

Gildert is a postdoctoral experimental physicist working at D-Wave Systems in the field of quantum devices, specifically, superconducting flux qubits and Josephson junctions. Gildert’s blog: PHYSICS AND CAKE.
