(17:56) Kristine Boone, PhD, Photonic Inc. -- Presentation from 2023 Workshop on Quantum Computing: Devices, Cryogenic Electronics and Packaging (QC-DCEP) ...
Summary: Silicon transistors, the essential building block of most modern electronic devices, cannot shrink much further without being rendered inoperable by quantum mechanics. This classical-quantum threshold in fact presents a tremendous opportunity: if we harness quantum mechanics, rather than attempt to avoid it, we could build a quantum computer. Quantum computers will open up a new world of opportunities — they could accomplish certain computational tasks exponentially faster which would otherwise be forever impractical. A few recent demonstrations in the US, China and Canada have claimed to have already outperformed the world’s top supercomputers using quantum computers at a few specific computational challenges. During this lecture, Dr. Boone will discuss quantum computing approaches (including Photonic inc’s, based upon CMOS-compatible silicon photonics & spins), how quantum technologies will change our lives in a very fundamental way, and provide a snapshot of the accelerating worldwide race to build a prototype.
Kristine Boone, PhD, works with the outreach and technical teams at Photonic Inc. Prior to the recent move, she was a Business Development Representative for Quantum Engineering Solutions at Keysight Technologies. Dr. Boone started her industry career as a researcher at the quantum computing start-up Quantum Benchmark Inc. (acquired in 2021 by Keysight) and obtained her PhD from the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC). Her research focused on the characterization of quantum computers, in particular on developing protocols to diagnose error ubiquitously present in quantum computations.
