<![CDATA[SCS Seminar Talk: Moinuddin Qureshi]]> 34541 TITLE: Reducing Errors in Quantum Computation via Program Transformation

ABSTRACT:

Quantum computing promises exponential speedups for an important class of problems. While quantum computers with few dozens of qubits have been demonstrated, these machines suffer from high rate of gate errors. Such machines are operated in the Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) mode of computing where the output of the machine can be erroneous. In this talk, I will discuss some of our recent work that aims to improve the reliability of NISQ computers by developing software techniques to mitigate the hardware errors. Our first work (ASPLOS 2019) exploits the variability in the error rates of qubits to steer more operations towards qubits with lower error rates and avoid qubits that are error-prone.  Our second work (MICRO 2019) looks at executing different versions of the programs each crafted to cause diverse mistakes so that the machine becomes less vulnerable to correlated errors.  Our third work (MICRO 2019) looks at exploiting the state-dependent bias in measurement errors (state 1 is more error prone than state 0) and dynamically flips the state of the qubit to perform the measurement in the stronger state. We perform our evaluations on real quantum machines from IBM and demonstrate significant improvement in the overall system reliability. If time permits, I will also briefly discuss the hardware aspect of designing quantum computers, including cryogenic processor and cryogenic memory system.

“Closing the Gap between Quantum Algorithms and Machines with Hardware-Software Co-Design ”

ABSTRACT:

Quantum computing is at an inflection point, where 72-qubit (quantum bit) machines are being tested, 100-qubit machines are just around the corner, and even 1000-qubit machines are perhaps only a few years away. These machines have the potential to fundamentally change our concept of what is computable and demonstrate practical applications in areas such as quantum chemistry, optimization, and quantum simulation. Yet a significant resource gap remains between practical quantum algorithms and real machines. The key to closing this gap is to develop techniques to specialize algorithms for hardware and vice versa. Quantum computing is the ultimate vertically-integrated domain-specific application, and computer engineers are sorely needed to tackle grand challenges that include programming language design, software and hardware verification, debugging and visualization tools, defining and perforating abstraction boundaries, cross-layer optimization, managing parallelism and communication, mapping and scheduling computations, reducing control complexity, machine-specific optimizations, learning error patterns, and many more. I will also describe the resources and infrastructure available for starting research in quantum computing and for tackling these challenges. .

<![CDATA[CRNCH/CSE Quantum Distinguished Lecture Series: Ken Brown]]> 34541 TITLE: Constructing a Quantum Computer

ABSTRACT:

Quantum computation uses the rules of quantum mechanics to process information in a way that is fundamentally different than a digital computer. This enables the construction of algorithms that are exponentially faster than the best know current algorithms.  These provable quantum speedups are currently beyond our reach due to the limitations of available quantum processors. I will give an overview of the state of the field and the challenges of scaling the hardware. I will discuss our recent work on quantum error correction and how this points towards the value of co-designing the hardware architecture and the applications.

<![CDATA[IDEaS Summer Workshop in Data Science and Scientific Computing]]> 27343 IDEaS Summer Workshop in Data Science and Scientific Computing
July 9 - Aug 8, 2018
M, W 10-11am

 
Graduate students and postdocs working in data science, scientific computing, and related fields need to learn quite a few skills, many of which are not necessarily part of their formal classroom training.
 
The Institute for Data Engineering and Science (IDEaS) will be hosting a summer workshop from July 9 through August 8 to provide an introduction to computer programming in Python, numerical linear algebra, databases, and machine learning.  The workshop will consist of one lecture each week, and one hands-on session each week dealing with an example problem in each area.
 
Sessions will be held in Molecular Science and Engineering MoSE G011, Mondays and Wednesdays from 10-11am (the meetings on July 30 and August 1 will be in the TSRB banquet hall instead).
 
Please forward this information to any students or staff who may be interested.  The workshop is free, but anyone who wishes to attend should register at http://vergil.chemistry.gatech.edu/cgi-bin/ideas-registration.py

 Click here for a flyer to print and post.

You are invited to participate in the Georgia Tech Datathon, hosted by IDEaS.

Datathons are a new type of live-action competition for STEM students. They are analogous to "Hackathons" for software engineers, but instead of building apps, contestants use real-world data to develop and substantiate solutions to a socially impactful problem. If you are curious to see what a Datathon looks like, we encourage you to view this brief clip from our past Dublin Datathon!

The Georgia Tech Datathon is hosted by Citadel LLC & Citadel Securities in partnership with Correlation One and the Institute for Data Engineering and Science at Georgia Tech. The event will take place on Saturday, February 3rd from 8:00am-6:00pm at Georgia Tech, Klaus 1116 E/W, Klaus Advanced Computing Building, 266 Ferst Dr NW, Atlanta, GA 30332. Highlights include:

To participate in Datathon, SIGN UP HERE to complete the Questionnaire, Assessment and Registration!

"Evolving an HPC Center for Diverse Workloads and Workflows"Friday, September 1, 2017, from 2-3 pm, in the TSRB Auditorium

Abstract

Supercomputing platforms and their hardware/software ecosystems at high-performance computing (HPC) data centers have been designed and tuned over the years to serve the needs of cutting edge simulation-based science. However, the emergence and rapid growth of data science problems, solutions, and associated technologies have created new demand for computing resources for an even broader range of business and scientific research communities. As a result, many computing centers are asking how to "pivot" their hardware and software services to fulfill the needs of increasingly diverse user communities without duplicating or multiplying resources. For instance, a common question is how to use co-processor technologies, like GPUs, for both simulation science and data science workloads, given their often differing software stacks. In this talk, I will give an overview of the evolution of technologies for simulation and data science workloads and workflows. I will compare and contrast technical requirements using two case studies, one representing each domain. I will then highlight challenges and opportunities for using consolidated technologies. Finally, I will discuss ongoing research and development opportunities that could offer a significant improvement in efficiency for diverse workloads and complex workflows by using converged solutions.
