• Daniel Stilck Franca

    Bio: Since 2018 Daniel has been a postdoc at the QMATH center of KU and will join INRIA in France as an assistant professor in the spring of 2022. He obtained his Ph.D. from TU Munich in 2018. Daniel’s primary interests lie in quantum computing and information. He developed various mathematical tools to characterize the effect of noise on quantum devices and worked on quantum algorithms for optimization. 

    Title of presentation: 
    Quantum computing evolution – a roadmap

    Abstract of presentation: I will summarize the current state of quantum computing and challenges and opportunities in the years ahead. I will first focus on the quest for the universal quantum computer, the potential roadblocks and paths forward. Then I will discuss alternatives to the universal quantum computer, such as simulators, annealers and NISQ devices, and their potential.
