Abstract: The second quantum revolution, transition from quantum theory to quantum engineering, is leading us towards practical quantum computing. However, there are still many obstacles hindering practical quantum computing. In this talk, we will briefly review the challenges and research opportunities in the state-of-the-art quantum computing engineering technology stacks, including quantum computing device, peripheral control hardware architecture, compiler design/optimization, programming language design, etc. In particular, we will also introduce our recent works, i.e., efficient qubit mapping, superconducting quantum processor architecture design, and quantum program assertions, in tackling some of these challenges.
Bio: Gushu Li is a third-year Ph.D student from Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of California, Santa Barbara, co-advised by Dr. Yuan Xie and Dr. Yufei Ding. His research interests include but are not limited to quantum computer architecture, programming language, and compiler optimization. His research has resulted in two papers published on ASPLOS’19, ASPLOS’20.​
