Zhixin Song

Ph.D. student at Georgia Institute of Technology

Title: A Guided Tour on the Map of Quantum Computing

Abstract: In this talk, Zhixin will walk through basic concepts of Quantum Computing (QC), including qubit, quantum gates, and measurement. No background knowledge is required from the audience. Then, he will introduce different types of quantum hardware and how to benchmark their performance. Moreover, application-based near-term quantum algorithms and intermediate level (between software and hardware) research will also be addressed briefly. Finally, Zhixin will provide some suggestions and resources for self-learning.

Bio: Zhixin Song is currently a Physics Ph.D. student at Georgia Institute of Technology. He has previously done an internship at Baidu Research, Institute for Quantum Computing, working on Variational Quantum Algorithms (VQAs) and developing a Quantum Machine Learning toolkit called Paddle Quantum. His current research focuses on experimental quantum simulation, control theory, and quantum many-body systems.
