Dr. Mark Jackson from Cambridge Quantum Computing will talk about tket.|
tket is an architecture-agnostic quantum software stack & best in class compiler. tket translates machine independent algorithms into executable circuits, optimising for physical qubit layout whilst reducing the number of required operations. tket's state-of-the-art qubit scheduling & routing protocol ensures optimal results even in the Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) era. This enables our partners, collaborators & clients to effortlessly work across multiple platforms & tackle some of the most intriguing & important problems in chemistry, material science, finance & optimization.
Dr. Mark Jackson is the Quantum Evangelist at Cambridge Quantum Computing. He received his B.S. in Physics & Mathematics from Duke University & Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Columbia University. He then spent 10 years researching superstring theory & cosmology, co-authoring almost 40 technical articles. To promote the public understanding of science, he founded the science crowdfunding platform Fiat Physica & non-profit Science Partnership Fund. He is Adjunct Faculty at Singularity University & a Director of Astronomers Without Borders.
