Mildner Lecture 2016 Video: "What’s next after Moore’s law: Quantum Computing"

Prof. John Martinis

A video of the excellent recent prestigous lecture given at UCL by Professor John Martinis, UCSB and Lead Engineer of Google’s Quantum AI team is now available to view below, including a very interesting question and answer session following the lecture.

Professor Martinis heads an effort at Google to build the first useful quantum computer.

On 20th May 2016, Professor Martinis delivered the 2016 Mildner Lecture at UCL in front of a packed audience of academics and industrialists in London. As microelectronics technology nears the end of exponential growth over time, known as Moore’s law, there is a renewed interest in new computing paradigms. For the lecture, Professor Martinis discussed recent research at UCSB on superconducting quantum bits, as well as our recent start at Google to build a useful quantum computer to solve machine learning problems. He highlighted two qubit experiments that his team have undertaken - one to simulate a chemical reaction that finds a cross section, and a second to extend the lifetime of a qubit state using quantum error correction.
