The team at Q-CTRL has been busy! There’s a ton to share and we are thrilled that we’ll be able to bring you a huge amount of content and insight at the upcoming IEEE Quantum Week as a Sponsor of the event. We wish we could be there in person, but we’re happy to provide some links to help you find us virtually. It will be really late at night Sydney time, so please wish us great deals of caffeination.

The Q-CTRL Booth: Our team will be stationed to answer your questions, perform product demos of Boulder Opal, and discuss how we can help you extract maximum performance from quantum hardware at our virtual booth.

Q-CTRL and IBM: Fri, Oct 16, 2020 10:45─16:45 Mountain Time (MDT) — UTC-6 Our one and only Lead for Quantum Professional Services, Dr Andre Carvalho, will be presenting our recent work improving the performance of IBM cloud quantum computers using Boulder Opal. He’ll be presenting during a workshop hosted by IBM discussing how quantum control can be used to overcome the imperfections endemic to superconducting quantum circuits.

Q-CTRL and Quantum Machines: Date: Mon, Oct 12, 2020 Time: 10:45-12:15 Mountain Time (MT) — UTC-6 The team at Q-CTRL recently announced a new partnership with Quantum Machines, integrating Boulder Opal with the QM Quantum Orchestration Platform. Michael Biercuk will join Itamar Sivan, CEO of Quantum Machines, and Theau Peronnin of Alice&Bob to discuss architectural pathways to fault-tolerance. This panel will discuss the importance of addressing the requirements which flow down from the demanding application of quantum error-correction, from the ground up. We’ll address recent advances in quantum error-correction and the relationship between error-correction and techniques for efficient hardware manipulation such as quantum control, quantum firmware, and quantum orchestration.

Q-CTRL and Zurich Instruments: Date: Tue, Oct 13, 2020 Time: 10:45─16:45 Mountain Time (MDT) — UTC-6 What does it take to build a scalable quantum computer? This workshop, hosted by Zurich Instruments, provides a platform for speakers and audience from academia, industry, and test & measurement instrument manufacturers to look into what activities have already been undertaken, how common mistakes can be avoided and what actions are still needed within the circuit QED (quantum electrodynamics) community to agree on a general set of guidelines that will simplify and support the development of quantum computers. Michael Biercuk will present an irreverent look at best practices from the software industry as the community aims to realize a complete quantum computing software stack.
