Deep dive: It is a pleasure to welcome to our meeting Gian Giacomo Guerreschi, Senior Research Scientist at Intel Labs and developer of the Intel Quantum Simulator, one of the leading simulators of gate-based algorithms on HPC systems.

Abstract: Classical simulation of quantum computers will continue to play an essential role in the progress of quantum information science, both for numerical studies of quantum algorithms and for modeling noise and errors. Here we present the latest release of Intel Quantum Simulator (IQS), an open-source simulator developed to take advantage of both multi-core and multi-node parallelization. We highlight the technical implementation of the distributed algorithm and discuss the recent “pool” functionality. The latter is particularly suitable to study the effect of decoherence and to emulate multiple quantum devices running in parallel. Finally, we discuss simulators as back-ends of quantum computing frameworks and demonstrate a compiler pass that speeds-up simulation.

We look forward to virtually meeting you on Wednesday! For your convenience, the contact details are copied below.

Best regards,
