TERATEC 2018 Forum
Workshop 3 - Wednesday, June 20 from 9h00 to 12h30


Quantum Computing at Google
Kevin KISSELL, Cloud technical director, GOOGLE

Abstract : Google created their Quantum AI Lab in 2013, initially to explore algorithms for machine learning on adiabatic quantim systems such as D-Wave. In 2014, the research team expanded to include the development of Google's own quantum hardware, based on superconducting qubits. In just a few years, the Google team has staked out a place among the world leaders in the development of gate-model quantum devices and algorithms. The latest Google device, code named "Bristlecone" is a 72-qubit design which should provide both the quantity and fidelity of qubits necessary to achieve "quantum supremacy", and demonstrate the feasibility of an an error-corrected quantum gate machine..

Biography : Before becoming a Cloud technical director, Kevin D. Kissell was by turns both a hardware engineer and a software engineer for Google's Technical Infrastructure team. Prior to Google, his work ranged from supercomputers to smart cards: Systems and software architecture, for decoupled access/execute supercomputers at ACRI, massively parallel distributed memory computers at nCUBE, large-scale shared-memory supercomputers at Evans & Sutherland, and multi-threaded I/O processor architecture and security/crypto processor architecture at MIPS Technologies. He holds several dozen patents in computer architecture and a degree in computer science from the University of California at Berkeley.
