We have recently received a distinguished visitor at QUANTIC, Will Zeng who is one of the software leaders in the new startup Rigetti Computing, which aim at building a quantum computer. The company recently opened up their 19-qubit small quantum computer for remote user access through their cloud environment. The researchers at QUANTIC are already testing this new technological wonder.
Will led the development of the software and theory teams at Rigetti Computing, including the Forest quantum programming environment. He started working with superconducting qubits in Michel Devoret and Andreas Wallraff’s labs before his PhD at Oxford on the mathematical structure of quantum algorithms.
It was nice having you around Will!
