UGA to host regional quantum computing workshop

UGA will host a regional workshop on quantum computing and quantum information science June 7 at the Center for Simulational Physics in the Physics Building. The third Southeast Quantum Computing Workshop is free, but registration is required. The workshop will cover all aspects of quantum computing and quantum information science.

Quantum computers, which use quantum states of subatomic particles to store information, were initiated as a field in 1980, and though its development remains in the early stages, some online capabilities are now available. Large-scale quantum computers could spur development in science, medicine and infrastructure by tackling problems that are not practically feasible on classical computers.

Invited speakers for the workshop include Francesco Evangelista, assistant professor at Emory University; Amara Katabarwa, quantum physicist at Zapata Computing, Inc.; and Siddarth Srinivasan, doctoral student at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

The growing impact and capacity of quantum computing is the focus of the regional workshop, which will offer researchers an opportunity to share short presentations.
