Q+ Hangout: Troels Frimodt Rønnow

Here are the details of the next Q+ hangout

Date: 28th January 2014

Time: 2pm UTC/GMT

Speaker: Troels Frimodt Rønnow (ETH Zurich)

Title: Quantum annealing on 503 qubits

Abastract: Quantum speedup refers to the advantage of quantum devices can over classical ones in solving classes of computational problems. In this talk we show how to correctly define and measure quantum speedup in experimental devices. We show how to avoid issues that might mask or fake quantum speedup. As illustration we will compare the performance of a D-Wave Two quantum annealing device on random spin glass instances to simulated classical and quantum annealers, and other classical solvers.
