(Robotics&AutomationReview) Q-CTRL, a startup that applies the principles of control engineering to make quantum technology useful, has formated a technical advisory board drawing top talent from a diverse range of disciplines to accelerate the industry’s development.
The technical advisory board will provide strategic advice to steer Q-CTRL’s efforts in developing next-generation quantum control technologies in support of both quantum computing and quantum sensing applications.
The board members include:
Pieter Abbeel, professor of electrical engineering and computer science and Director of the Berkeley Robot Learning Lab at the University of California, Berkeley.
–Jason Cong, the Volgenau Chair for Engineering Excellence in the Samueli School of Engineering and former chair of the computer science department at UCLA.
–Richard Murray, Thomas E. and Doris Everhart Professor of Control & Dynamical Systems at California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, California
–Daniela Rus, Andrew and Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Director of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Mass.
–Birgitta Whaley, professor of chemical physics and director, Berkeley Quantum Information and Computation Center at UC Berkeley.
Professor Michael J. Biercuk, Q-CTRL founder and CEO, says: “Our mission is to accelerate the developing greenfield quantum technology industry, and that requires critical insight from outside of our specialized discipline.
“Our technical advisory board has a wealth of experience in advising academia, government, and industry in a diverse number of technology areas, as well as tremendous success in building leading startups.”
