To help computer science researchers transition into quantum computing researchers, we are developing open-source tools to allow them to make research contributions quickly as well as creating and delivering tutorial materials to build the knowledge necessary to understand quantum computation, the next set of compelling research problems, and how computer scientists can contribute.
We have created several resources for computer science researchers who want to learn about quantum computing.
- Our Nature paper that gives an overview of the compelling problems in quantum computing and their relationship to computer science systems research.
- Quantum Computing for Computer Architects, an introduction to quantum computing specifically tailored to architects and other computer scientists who are not as familiar with the theoretical concepts or physics perspective.
Check here for additional resources in the future.
We are reaching out to researchers through prominent talks and tutorials.
- Keynote at HPCA '18: Margaret Martonosi is giving a keynote titled, "What is the role of Architecture and Software Researchers on the Road to Quantum Supremacy?"
- Keynote at ASPLOS '18: Fred Chong is giving a keynote titled, "Quantum Computing is Getting Real: Architecture, PL, and OS roles in Closing the Gap between Quantum Algorithms and Machines."
- Tutorial at ISCA '18: The EPICQ team and IBM are giving a tutorial titled, "Introduction to Grand Challenges and Research Tools for Quantum Computing."
