Seminar: Quantum Computing at D-Wave with Dr. Victoria Goliber, September 27

Quantum Information Processing Seminar Series event this fall! D-Wave’s mission is to unlock the power of quantum computing for the world. Learn about D-Wave’s quantum computers and suite of software tools from ASU alumna Victoria Goliber.

Quantum Computing at D-Wave
Presented by Victoria Goliber, senior technical analyst, D-Wave Systems

Monday, September 27, 2021
10 a.m.
Attend on Zoom


D-Wave’s mission is to unlock the lower of quantum computing for the world. In this seminar, Victoria Goliber will introduce you to D-Wave’s quantum computers and suite of software tools that are available through the Leap cloud platform. Starting with a high-level overview of quantum annealing, Goliber will explore how we can interact with the hardware using the Ocean Software Development Kit, a Python programming package. To conclude, Goliber will showcase some live demos and real-world customer applications.

About the speaker

Victoria Horan Goliber, senior technical analyst, joined the sales team at D-Wave Systems in 2018. In her current role, Goliber works with teams around the world to bring quantum annealing to a variety of groups through seminars, workshops and conferences. She received her doctoral degree in discrete mathematics from Arizona State University through the U.S. Department of Defense Science, Mathematics and Research for Transformation (SMART) scholarship program, and more recently completed a master’s degree in computer science with a specialization in machine learning from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Her doctoral research bridged both mathematics and computer science with a focus on de Bruijn sequences and Gray codes for combinatorial objects. After graduation, Goliber worked as a senior mathematician with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Directorate, along with a special assignment as the executive officer to the director.
