Establishment of Quantum Innovation Laboratory: Optimizing a Decision Diagram-based Free and Open-Source Quantum Circuit Simulator for Benchmarking in an HPC Environment using Entanglement, Random Circuits, and Quantum Algorithms Benchmark Datasets [QCS Project]

28 Jul 2022 4:17 PM

The project entitled “Establishment of Quantum Innovation Laboratory: Optimizing a Decision Diagram-based Free and Open-Source Quantum Circuit Simulator for Benchmarking in an HPC Environment using Entanglement, Random Circuits, and Quantum Algorithms Benchmark Datasets”, or QCS Project, is an initiative for quantum computing research in DOST-ASTI that will serve as the foundation for the succeeding project proposals of the institution in this domain. The project will focus on the optimization of available quantum circuit simulators for execution in DOST-ASTI’s COARE HPC facility. Outputs of the project will allow local researchers to execute few-qubit simulation of quantum algorithms for algorithm verification in COARE. Also, knowledge-sharing activities will be conducted to teach/train potential researchers in the domain on how to use the simulators in COARE for their own quantum computing research.

 

About QCS Project


The QCS Project is a flagship project on quantum computing research of the DOST. The project aims to optimize available quantum circuit simulators for execution in DOST-ASTI’s computing facility.

Outputs of the project will allow local researchers to execute few-qubit simulation of quantum algorithms for algorithm verification in a computing infrastructure. Also, knowledge-sharing activities will be conducted to teach/train potential researchers in the domain on how to use the simulators in a computing facility, for their own quantum computing research in the future.
