Title：Photonic Quantum Computing Advantages based on Gaussian Boson Sampling
Host：Mengjun Hu, Assistant Research Scientist, BAQIS
Abstract：Quantum computers have ultra-fast parallel computing capabilities in principle, but are limited by the current level of experimental technology, and building a large-scale fault-tolerant quantum computer with practical value still requires long-term efforts. Therefore, in order to further prove the prospect of quantum computing, we need to prove that dedicated quantum devices can surpass classical supercomputers on specific issues based on existing experimental techniques. This is also known as the advantages of quantum computing. Recently, based on the Gaussian Bose sampling scheme, we have used an optical system to achieve the advantages of optical quantum computing, and used a variety of methods to verify the experimental results. Compared with supercomputers using existing classic algorithms, its sampling rate is 10^24 times faster.
