Event Details & Abstracts

Abstract: Quantum computing has entered a compelling scientific era as now quantum algorithms can be run on multiple physical systems. Building even larger machines with error correction is a significant engineering challenge that will require good systems engineering practices. Here I discuss some scientific and technical strategies and ideas that will be important to consider when transitioning from scientific research to development of a complex engineered system. Also considered will be constraints specific to quantum computers, for example the inability to copy information and the need for complex control systems.
