Simulating Gravity via Many-body Teleportation (JM4A.1)
Presenter: Norman Yao, University of California, Berkeley

The conventional context for quantum teleportation is to leverage entanglement between a few, well-controlled degrees of freedom in order to transmit quantum information. This talk will describe a new class of many-body teleportation protocols capable of identifying gravitational dynamics and distinguishing between decoherence and quantum information scrambling.

Engineering Quantum Spin Models with Atoms and Light (JM4A.2)
Presenter: Monika Schleier-Smith, Stanford University

Optically controlled interactions among cold atoms open new opportunities in quantum simulation, metrology, and computation. I will report on engineering and harnessing long-range spin interactions in cavity-QED and Rydberg-atom experiments.

Quantum Firmware: Ingredients and Applications (JM4A.3)
Presenter: Cornelius Hempel, University of Sydney

Quantum firmware captures the layer between physical gate operations and their logical equivalent at a higher level. Our experiments on trapped-ion qubits demonstrate its use to suppress errors, error correlations and increase gate robustness.
