Argonne team wins Best Student Paper at IEEE Higher Performance Extreme Computing 2019 HPEC Conference
Congratulations to the Argonne team of student Rusian Shaydulin, and scientists Ilya Safro and Jeffrey Larson for winning the Best Student Paper Award at HPEC 2019 for their paper "Multistart Methods for Quantum Approximate Optimization" developed as part of QAT4Chem.
UC Berkeley Professor and QAT4Chem co-PI Norman Yao co-authors a Nature publication describing an experimental implementation of verified quantum information scrambling on a trapped ion quantum computer developed by the Monroe group at the University of Maryland.
QAT4Chem team has strong presence at American Physical Society March Meeting
The team presented QAT4Chem research progress in six presentations at the APS March 2019 Meeting:
- "End-to-end quantum chemistry simulations with reduced errors", Urbanek, Lavrijsen, de Jong
- "SKQuant-Opt: Optimizers for Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum Devices", Lavrijsen, Tudor, Larson, Sung, Linder, Mueller, McClean, Babbush, Urbanek, de Jong, Iancu, de Jong
- "Algorithm-Centric Error Mitigation", Younis, Lavrijsen, Sen, Buluc, Urbanek, de Jong, Iancu
- "Postponing the orthogonality catastrophe: efficient state preparation for electronic structure simulations on quantum devices", Tubman, Zaera, Epstein, Hait, Levine, Huggins, Jiang, McClean, Babbush, Head-Gordon, Whaley
- "Linear Depth Circuit Unitary Coupled Cluster Wavefunctions for Quantum Computation", Huggins, Lee, Head-Gordon, Whaley
- "Low-depth parallelization of k-local gates and applications", O’Gorman, Huggins, Rieffel, Whaley
LBNL and QAT4Chem join Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s IBM Q Hub as a member, enabling access to the IBM Q commercial systems, over the cloud, and contribute to quantum computing education, research, development, and implementation.
Led by the QAT4Chem team, the three DOE ASCR QAT teams teamed up with NASA Ames and companies Google and IBM to deliver an all-day tutorial to a packed crowd of close to 100 participants at SC18 in Dallas, TX.
