USC to Lead IARPA Quantum Computing Project

Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 08:42 in Mathematics & Economics

USC will lead a consortium of universities and private companies to build quantum computers that are at least 10,000 times faster than the best state-of-the-art classical computers.Such high-powered machines could help facilitate the solution of some of the most difficult optimization problems such as machine learning for image recognition, resolving scheduling conflicts in events with many participants, as well as sampling for improved prediction of random events.
