Welcome Back to in-person Colloquiums!
A reception will be held in Olin Lounge* at 3:30 PM prior to the colloquium. All interested persons are cordially invited to attend.
* We encourage all to wander out to the front entrance of the building or up to the Observatory Deck on the 3rd floor to enjoy their refreshments.


In recent years, noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) computers have emerged as a novel technology with potential applications to fields such as physics, chemistry, medicine, and cryptography. In this talk, I will give an overview of the potential and limitations of presently-available, cloud-based NISQ devices with respect to simulating quantum many-body dynamics. I will discuss current efforts to mitigate errors, short- and long-term aspirations of researchers using this technology, and the role of current quantum computers in teaching innovative courses on quantum mechanics.
