Quantum Fault Tolerance: From Practice to Theory
Speaker Dr. Shilin Huang, Yale University
Date 26 March 2024 (Tuesday)
Time 10:30 - 12:00
Venue Room 2405, Academic Building, HKUST (Lifts 17-18)
It’s becoming increasingly clear that accomplishing useful quantum computation tasks necessitates large-scale quantum computers with extremely low operation error rates. In this talk, I will explain how quantum error correction and fault tolerance are necessary for achieving this goal. I'll present recent work on implementing fault-tolerant quantum circuits on state-of-the-art trapped-ion quantum computers, and discuss how these advancements inspire new theoretical ideas for fault-tolerant quantum computation protocol design. Additionally, I'll discuss potential opportunities in quantum fault tolerance research.
Shilin Huang is a postdoctoral associate at Yale University. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Tsinghua University and his PhD from Duke University, supervised by Prof. Kenneth R. Brown. His research focuses on quantum information theory, particularly on building scalable quantum computers using techniques from quantum error correction and control.
