Speaker: Zheng Zhang


Zheng (Eddy) Zhang is an Associate Professor at Rutgers University. Her research is in compilers, systems, and quantum computing. A central tenet of her research is to develop efficient compiler techniques for emerging computing architectures such as many-core GPUs and quantum processing units. Her recent work focuses on the synergistic interaction between algorithms, programming languages, intermediate representation, and micro-architectures for near-term intermediate scale (NISQ) computing devices. She will be talking about mapping and scheduling problems that arise in the compilation process of quantum programs in the NISQ era.

Abstract: We are at the verge of quantum revolution. Google has demonstrated supremacy with less than 100 qubits by performing a specific calculation (on a random number generator) that is beyond reach even for the best classical supercomputer. Quantum computers may soon be able to solve large scale problems in chemistry, physics, cryptography, machine learning, and database search. However, there is a significant gap between the quantum algorithms and the physical devices that can support them. Most well-known quantum algorithms are designed with perfect hardware in mind. But hardware has constraints. A compiler framework is needed for efficiently converting quantum algorithm in high level specification to that in hardware-compliant code. This talk will focus on mapping and scheduling problems in the compilation process for superconducting quantum computers. Tackling these problems not improves the performance but also the fidelity of the quantum programs.
