Accelerating the Cloud with Quantum
TimeTuesday, 16 November 20212pm - 2:30pm CST
DescriptionAzure Quantum is about the present and future of cloud computing. It’s an integrated quantum-classical compute portfolio that empowers you with the tools to help remake the global economy. Quantum acceleration promises to help solve some of our planet’s biggest challenges—in energy, climate, agriculture, and health—and across a broad span of industrial sectors, including computational chemistry, materials science, and nuclear and particle physics. Quantum computers are accelerators and the success of quantum computation requires seamless integration in a high-performance cloud, to enable hyperscale workloads with complex classical pre-, post-, and co-processing. To achieve the full promise requires scaling up; we need to build a leadership-class quantum machine with more than 1M physical qubits. I’ll share the types of problems a quantum machine will accelerate, and how quantum ideas are being emulated to enhance classical solutions, enabling quantum impact right now. Welcome to the quantum era of computing.
