"How to get most of NISQ computers with Qiskit"



Abstract from Tomek:

Current Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) computers have multiple limitations. These are caused by gates and readout errors, topology limitation and the need to express more advanced gates with natively implemented ones. Additionally, limited relaxation and coherence times require high optimization of the circuits. However using NISQ computers with awareness and additional software help can give good results. The lecture will present Qiskit capabilities on how this can be done.

BIO: Tomek works in IBM Software Lab in Kraków. He obtained his PhD in Physics from AGH University of Science and Technology. With a background in theoretical solid-state physics he moved to software development many years ago ;). Currently works as a development manager in software licensing space. He is an IBM-Q Ambassador and IBM Master Inventor with many IT-related patents and publications.

This meeting is organized by the Quantum AI Foundation.
