Title: Introduction to Variational Quantum Algorithms

Abstract: Variational quantum algorithms are gaining more attention due to its resilience to noises. In this talk, Cheng will briefly introduce the principles of variational quantum algorithms. And he will demonstrate the performance of variational algorithms under a variety of types and strengths of noise. Examples of variational quantum algorithms will be given and discussed.

Bio: Jinglei Cheng is an EE PhD student at University of Southern California, supervised by Prof. Xuehai Qian at the ALCHEM research group. Prior to joining USC, he obtains the B.S. degree from Tsinghua University. He has been working on optimizing and accelerating variational quantum algorithms.
