Accelerating scientific discovery through quantum information sciences
Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of scientific computing. In this talk, I will discuss the potential benefits from QIS systems and the challenges to be addressed toward this future. In addition, I will discuss the work at PNNL in developing a collaborative research program in QIS. I will center my discussion around computational chemistry, one of the most promising QIS applications, but will also touch upon computer science challenges in efficiently utilizing the limited quantum computing hardware available in the near term.
Sriram Krishnamoorthy currently is a research scientist in PNNL’s High Performance Computing group, where he focuses on parallel programming models, fault tolerance, and compile-time/runtime optimizations for high-performance computing. He has more than 100 peer-reviewed conference and journal publications, receiving Best Paper awards for his publications at the International Conference on High Performance Computing (HiPC’03) and the International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS’04). In 2013, he received a U.S. Department of Energy Early Career award. That year, he also earned PNNL’s Ronald L. Brodzinski Award for Early Career Exceptional Achievement. In 2008, he received The Ohio State University’s Outstanding Researcher award. Dr. Krishnamoorthy is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He earned his B.E. from the College of Engineering, Guindy (Chennai, India) and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from The Ohio State University.
