Keynote: Building Google’s Quantum Computer (QM1A.1)
Presenter: Marissa Giustina, Google AI Quantum

The Google AI Quantum team develops chip-based circuitry that one can interact with (control and read out) and which behaves reliably according to a simple quantum model. Such quantum hardware holds promise as a platform for tackling problems intractable to classical computing hardware. While the demonstration of a universal, fault-tolerant, quantum computer remains a goal for the future, it has informed the design of a prototype with which we have recently controlled a quantum system of unprecedented scale. This talk introduces Google’s quantum computing effort from both hardware and quantum-information perspectives, including an overview of recent technological developments and results.

Integrating the Trapped Ion Quantum Processor (QM1A.2)
Presenter: Daniel Slichter, NIST

I will describe recent results on high-fidelity control and readout of trapped ion qubits using microwave electrodes and single photon detectors integrated into chip-based ion traps, and discuss prospects for scaling and further integration.

Programmable Neutral Atom Systems (QM1A.3)
Presenter: Benjamin Bloom, Atom Computing

Neutral atoms like their ionic counterpart have demonstrated incredible storage time of quantum information. Coupled with recent demonstrations of atom-atom entanglement this platform offers great promise for truly large scale quantum systems for computation. Here we present recent work of creating a programmable quantum system akin to what has been accomplished with other computing platforms.
