"What is the role of Architecture and Software Researchers on the Road to Quantum Supremacy?"

Margret Martonosi keynote at HPCA-24 in Vienna, Austria

EPiQC Co-PI Margret Martonosi gave the Keynote lecture at the 24th IEEE International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture (HPCA-24) .  HPCA  is the the premier international forum for presenting research results in high performance and parallel computing.   Martonosi’s keynote talk entitled “What is the role of Architecture and Software Researchers on the Road to Quantum Supremacy?” explored fundamental themes of the EPiQC NSF Expedition project including the promises and challenges of near-to-intermediate term quantum computing.  


Martonosi discussed the role of systems researchers in helping realize the promise of quantum computing; and important tools that need to be developed to make quantum computing practical in the near term such as:  high-level programming languages, compilers, error correcting codes, control software, debugging tools, and hybrid, application-aware, Error-correcting code (ECC) mechanisms.  Additionally Martonosi was awarded the inaugural HPCA Test of Time Award with David Brooks for their paper, “Dynamically exploiting narrow width operands to improve processor power and performance”, HPCA ’99.
