  Dr. Man-Hong Yung is an associate professor of physics at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) located in Shenzhen, China. Currently, he is on subbatical leave for joining Huawei Technologies as the Chief Scientist for quantum algorithms and software. 

  Dr. Yung obtained a bachelor and a master degree in physics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Then, he moved to the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where he obtained a PhD degree under the supervision of Prof. Anthony Leggett. Then, he joined Harvard Univeristy as a postdoctoral researcher in the research group of Prof. Alan Aspuru-Guzik. After that, he returned to China and worked as an assistant professor at the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences directed by Prof. Andrew Yao at Tsinghua University, before joining SUSTech in Shenzhen.

  His recent research interests include quantum simulation, quantum control, quantum machine learning, and applications for near-term quantum devices. He is one of the inventors of the method of variational quantum eigensolver (VQE) for simulating quantum chemistry with quantum devices, which has been widely adopted as the main tool for quantum chemsitry simulation in the field. 

  报告摘要:

  Quantum computing is now emerging as a rapidly-growing industry on a global scale. This is mainly because of the many technological breakthroughs achieved over the last few years. Remarkably, it was experimentally demonstrated that the status of computational advantage (also known as quantum supremacy) can be reached with only 53 noisy qubits. The next step is to demonstrate how near-term chips can solve practical problems better than any classical means. For this purpose, hardware improvement is not enough; what is perhaps more important might be the algorithm and/or software part. In this talk, I will share my experience over the last few years in trying to push forward this direction.
