Theoretical Reflections on Quantum Supremacy

11:40 AM to 12:40 PM

Register here - https://columbiauniversity.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUvfuippjMvG9PO3X-mZrjOjCW_9lgt3M_m

Umesh Vazirani, UC Berkeley

The recent demonstration of quantum supremacy by Google is a first step towards the era of small to medium scale quantum computers. In this talk I will explain what the experiment accomplished and the theoretical work it is based on, as well as what it did not accomplish and the many theoretical and practical challenges that remain. I will also describe recent breakthroughs in the design of protocols for the testing and benchmarking of quantum computers, a task that has deep computational and philosophical implications. Specifically, this leads to protocols for scalable and verifiable quantum supremacy, certifiable quantum random generation and verification of quantum computation.

The talk will be aimed at a broad audience.

Rising Stars in Engineering in Health - Virtual Workshop

9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The emergent concept of managing health and wellness in a highly precise and personalized manner, both on an individual basis and for the larger population, increases the need for engineering advances that can improve human health. As technological developments allow us to take a more customized, holistic snapshot of the patient, the relationship between engineering and health science becomes increasingly symbiotic. At Columbia University, the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (FF SEAS) and the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S) work side-by-side to innovate at the intersection of engineering and health science and educate the next generation of scientists. As we pursue excellence in engineering in health, we have made it our priority to do so in an environment that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion. With this in mind, FF SEAS and VP&S are pleased to present our inaugural Rising Stars in Engineering in Health Workshop. We welcome applicants who are interested in the intersection of engineering and biomedicine, and who include postdoctoral fellows/research scientists and graduate students who are 1-2 years away from applying for a faculty position. We especially encourage applicants from groups historically underrepresented in the disciplines. This full-day virtual workshop will take place on Friday, December 18, 2020, and will feature rapid-fire research talks, educational presentations, and panel discussions with Columbia Engineering and Medicine faculty.

Eligibility:
Applicants must be doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, or research scientists who aspire to seek a faculty position in the interdisciplinary field of engineering and biomedicine in Fall 2021 or later.

Selection:
Twenty rising stars will be selected from the applicant pool to participate as presenters and participants in the Workshop. All qualified applicants, whether they are selected as a rising star or not, will be invited to attend the educational portions of the Workshop.

Application Requirements:
Applicants should submit the following materials via the Google Form above:

* 2-page academic statement
* 1-page diversity statement
* CV

Applicants are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible and no later than November 30, 2020.

Notification:
Successful applicants will be notified by December 7, 2020.

Workshop Sample Schedule:
• Welcome and Introduction (Deans of Engineering and Medicine)
• Senior Faculty Panel: Why Academics?
• How to Prepare Academic and Diversity Statements
• How to Give an Efficient Job Talk and Chalk Talk
• Junior Faculty Panel: Pearls and Pitfalls in Academic Job Applications
• Rapid-Fire Research Presentations
