SUMMARY:An introduction to quantum algorithms
CLASS:PUBLIC
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Quantum computers are designed to outperform standar
d computers by running quantum algorithms. Areas in which quantum algorith
ms can be applied include cryptography\, search and optimisation\, simulat
ion of quantum systems and solving large systems of linear equations. Prof
. Montanaro will briefly present some known quantum algorithms\, with an e
mphasis on their applications. He will also discuss recent developments an
d near-term applications of quantum algorithms.\nShort bio: Professor Ash
ley Montanaro\, Professor of Quantum Computation in the School of Mathemat
ics at the University of Bristol\, member of the Quantum Information Theor
y and Theory and Algorithms research groups.\nProf. Montanaro has worked
in the field of quantum computing for 17 years\, specialising in quantum a
lgorithms and quantum computational complexity\, and has published over 50
papers on this topic. He holds a PhD in quantum computing from the Univer
sity of Bristol\, supervised by Prof. Richard Jozsa. Ashley has been a pos
tdoctoral fellow at the University of Cambridge. He held an EPSRC Early Ca
reer Research Fellowship from 2014 to 2019 and was awarded a Whitehead Pri
ze in 2017 by the London Mathematical Society. He has served on the Steeri
ng Committee of the international conference on Quantum Information Proces
sing (QIP)\, and as a Founding Editor of the journal Quantum. \nProf. Mont
anaro is also the co-founder of Phasecraft\, a quantum software startup wh
ose goal is to get the most out of near-term quantum computing hardwa
re. Phasecraft collaborates with leading quantum hardware companies\, incl
uding Google and Rigetti\, and with academic and industry leaders to devel
op high-efficiency software that evolves quantum computing from experiment
al demonstrations to useful applications.
