STEM Speaker Series: “Understanding Quantum Computing Advantages” with Dr. Supartha Podder

Date: 04/11/2023

Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Special Collections Seminar Room


Across the globe different entities are in a race to build quantum computing architectures with the goal of harnessing the power of quantum mechanics to solve problems, potentially much faster than traditional computers. Some entities have already managed to build small scale working quantum computers and in the coming years these architectures will be scaled up. Thus a very interesting question is to understand for which problems quantum computations would potentially outperform traditional classical computing devices and in general how to take advantage of quantum properties such as the ‘quantum entanglement’, ‘quantum no-cloning therorem’ to securely design various functionalities which are classically either intractable or impossible. In this talk, we will take a close look at these topics and see how our group is investigating these questions.

Supartha Podder is an assistant professor of the Department of Computer Science, Stony Brook University. He works in quantum algorithms, complexity theory and cryptography. Supartha earned his PhD in computer science from the Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore. He holds masters in computer science from École Normale Supérieure de Cachan (ENS de Cachan) and Chennai Mathematical Institute (CMI). Prior to joining Stony Brook, Podder was a postdoc at the University of Ottawa and at UT Austin.
