Though early in its development, quantum computing is now available on real hardware via the cloud through IBM Q. This radically new kind of computing holds open the possibility of solving some problems that are now and perhaps always will be intractable for “classical” computers.
As with any new technology there are a lot of open questions. What is the road to Quantum Advantage, e.g. the point where quantum computing shows demonstrable and significant advantage over classical computers and algorithms? What is the status of Quantum computers today? How do we define a full system-metric to measure the performance of a Quantum System? This Sky talk will answer these questions. We will discuss what we can do in EDA to improve the performance of Quantum Systems and describe the types of EDA problems where quantum computing might be applied.
