Bob Sutor, vice president for Q Strategy and Ecosystem at IBM Research, will deliver the School of Engineering's John R. and Donna S. Hall Engineering Lecture.
In his lecture – “Quantum Computing: Don't Count Your Qubits Before They're Hatched” – Sutor will discuss the basics of the technology, the motivation for quantum computing, and the outlook for the future. “I'll especially emphasize the roles academic institutions will have in research and in driving the next generation of educated potential quantum computer users,” Sutor said. IBM Q quantum devices are accessed using Qiskit, a modular, open-source programming framework.
A reception in Adams Atrium, Featheringill Hall, will follow the lecture.
