Quantum computers are currently small and noisy devices, with little commercial value or advantage over classical alternatives. As these computers continue to grow, the challenge not only becomes creating and maintaining a collection of qubits, but also building the control system to make them useful. The software and hardware that forms the control stacks for current devices will not scale, and this must change. The solution requires a multidisciplinary approach that integrates rapid advancements in both quantum software and systems engineering.

Bio: Kenton Barnes is a Quantum Engineer at Riverlane, involved in the design of the architecture for an operating system for quantum computers. He has previously researched the automatic creation of quantum programs, using both the circuit model and category-theoretic approaches.
