•    exchange ideas and research results,
•    integrate information across different research teams,
•    build a community around quantum informatics.

Venue: via Internet, Webex


Tuesday, 15th March 2022,  9:35-11:00

Artur Stabrawa and William Clements , ORCA Computing

Temat: Photonic Quantum Computing using NISQ boson sampler



Founded in 2019, ORCA Computing ltd. are pioneers in photonic quantum computing. ORCA is building a unique, room-temperature, photonic quantum computing platform through use of their proprietary quantum memory technology. In doing so ORCA aims to tackle the largest challenges faced by the photonic quantum computing community, and to build scalable, universal photonic quantum computer.

This presentation will highlight the progress and a roadmap of a near-term photonic device that ORCA has built and provides to users, nurturing early-experience with quantum computing. It will also highlight key capabilities of the ORCA system simulator and an SDK along with preliminary benchmarking results within Machine Learning [1], like optimization and image recognition applications.
