Abstract: Quantum computers have the potential to solve certain computational tasks significantly faster than classical computers. Although the theory of quantum fault-tolerance ensures that quantum computers can operate reliably in the presence of decoherence and noise, achieving such noise levels in experiments remains extremely challenging. In this talk, the basics of a few strategies to reduce and correct errors in quantum computers will be discussed.

Bio: Dr. Milad Marvian is an Assistant Professor in the ECE Department and also a member of the Center for Quantum Information and Control (CQuIC). Before joining UNM in 2020, he was a postdoctoral associate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He completed his Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering in 2018 at the University of Southern California.
