Nathan Wiebe; Specialist, Quantum Machine Learning, University of Toronto; will speak on a “Special Panel: AI and Quantum: Their Mutual Benefits” at IQT Canada 2023.
Nathan Wiebe is a researcher in quantum computing who focuses on quantum methods for machine learning and simulation of physical systems. His work has provided several fundamentally new paradigms for quantum computing specifically: linear-combinations of unitaries and also the quantum singular value transformation paradigm. These techniques form the bedrock of almost all modern algorithms for simulation and differential equation solving for quantum computers. He also has introduced the first quantum algorithms for deep learning, least squares fitting, optimal quantum gradient descent, optimal quantum mean value estimation, near-optimal simulation of time-dependent physical systems and has currently the most efficient quantum algorithms for simulating chemistry. His work has been cited over 12000 times and has an h-index of 50.
Nathan received his PhD in 2011 from the University of Calgary studying quantum computing before accepting a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Waterloo. Wiebe worked at Microsoft research from 2013 to 2019 before leaving for the university of Washington and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. He joined the University of Toronto in the computer science department in 2021 and became a CIFAR fellow in 2023.
IQT Canada 2023 is the tenth global conference and exhibition in the highly successful Inside Quantum Technology series.
This event is Canada’s Quantum Computing Event, focusing on Ecosystems for Quantum Readiness. A number of vertical topics encompassing more than 30 panels and talks from over 80 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding on state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum ecosystems as well as the current impact of quantum computing technologies.
The conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers and investors who are working on the current future developments of the quantum ecosystem. IQT Canada is organized by 3DR Holdings, IQT Research, INTRIQ, and the Governments of both Canada and Quebec. The June conference will be an “in-person” event to ensure maximum networking and discussion and will take place at Centre Mont-Royal in Montréal (Québec), Canada.
