Quantum Computing and Topology

Quantum Computing and Topology

M1

Digital Trends, IT Decision Makers, Level: 200, Sessioner2018

In this session, I will consider approaches to quantum computing that take advantage of topology to preserve quantum coherence. This can take the form of “topology in software” or, the approach the Microsoft is taking, “topology in hardware.” I will first discuss decoherence and how it is detrimental to quantum computing. Then I will consider the experimental approaches to preventing decoherence based on various notions of topology. No math background required!
