Quantum Computing: A New Resource for the Most Complex Problems

SESSION: HPC Futures and Exascale

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums

TIME: 11:00AM - 11:30AM


Presenter(s):Colin Williams



Despite the incredible power of today’s supercomputers, there are many computationally-intensive applications that can’t be addressed effectively by conventional systems. Quantum computers have left the laboratory and offer the potential to help solve some of the most complex technical, commercial, scientific, and national defense problems that organizations face. In the near term quantum computing will complement HPC by providing unique computing resources for complex optimization problems, Monte Carlo / sampling applications and provide new capabilities to advance machine learning.

In this presentation, Dr. Williams will explain the basics of quantum computing, the current state and future potential of this revolutionary technology, and the kinds of applications that it will address.
