Krysta Svore on Quantum Computing

Sign in to queue

Description

Microsoft researcher Krysta Svore shares her passion for quantum computing, and how and why her team is creating a unique software architecture for quantum computing called LIQUi|>. This new environment contains complex algorithms for quantum circuit manipulation and optimization, and for layout on various quantum architectures, in addition to many other development tools. Her goal is to determine what the first generation of quantum computers can do for us by building software tools that unlock the potential of quantum computing, while continuing to explore the infinite number of open research problems that someday might overcome today's technology limitations.

    Great questions, and Ms. Svore did a great job of explaining a fascinating, complicated topic.

    That's a set of very intelligent and thought provoking questions from the interviewer. Krysta addressed them with clarity and yet with enough room for imagination for physicists, mathematicians, and computer scientist/researchers. I hope the time horizon can be significantly shortened (from her estimated 10 years) by having the industry and academia collectively work together, across the globe. I wonder why no question asked about D-wave, or competitive landscape (Google, IBM alike) in terms of state of art of quantum computing. Probably by design, but it's nice to learn about Krysta's perspectives on that. Since the filed is really pre-competitive, I think collaboration is more important than competition, or a fine balance between both.

    Why not focus on running Qubit computers as simulations on standard binary computers? What are the draw backs or limits of Microsoft's Liquid?

    What moral questions will we have to ask our selves once we harness the ability to accurately model physical systems. What dilemmas will a quantum computer open doors to. Any draw back to having a quantum computer? Any one asking these questions or is it "full steam ahead!"?

    I'm still puzzled by how quantum entanglement works.:D

    Thanks for the interview. I would like more like it on this topic.
