Received Google NISQ award from Google AI Quantum

February 27, 2020

From 2017, Google has been giving the award called the Google Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) award for the academic researchers who collaborated with Google's quantum computing development teams. This year, Mohammad Hafezi, Alireza Seif, and Hwanmun Kim have received this award for the collaboration in developing efficient methods for simulating physical systems using quantum computers and estimating the required experimental resources for that simulation. This work is expected to give more near-future applications for Google's quantum computer which demonstrated quantum supremacy, as Google claimed in October last year.
