New quantum algorithms for old challenges: from quantum simulation to quantum error correction

10:00am - 11:00am
ECE conference room 2515-2516 (2/F via lifts 25/26), Academic Building, HKUST

In this talk, I will present our recent efforts on developing novel quantum algorithms to address longstanding challenges in quantum simulation, quantum error correction, and quantum chemistry. These progresses are made possible by leveraging the quantum embedding framework as well as a unified understanding for modern quantum algorithms via quantum signal processing. In addition to discrete-variable systems such as qubits, in the second part, I will present control protocols that harness continuous-variable bosonic modes to perform universal qudit-based quantum computation. I will also discuss future opportunities of these quantum algorithms and protocols for applications across engineering, physics, and chemistry such as quantum material design, quantum sensing, software-hardware co-design and beyond.
