Riverlane is developing a Python based framework to define the control stack of quantum computers. To control a quantum computer a heterogeneous system with CPUs, FPGAs and custom hardware is needed.  The Riverlane Deltalanguage allows you to write python (and migen) code to so do.  Python has been adopted as physicists and other users are asking for a familiar yet powerful language and Riverlane are ensuring that quantum computing can can be readily adopted.

The speaker will be Marco Ghibaudi who is Vice President of Engineering at Riverlane and a FPGA expert with a PhD in Innovative Technologies from CERN / ScuolaSuperiore Sant’Anna Pisa.  As part of his PhD, he contributed to the design of the CERN ATLAS experiment back-end electronics and to the development of prototypes used in automative, IOT and fibre-optic communications.  In the past five years, Marco has worked in multinational companies specializing in systems on chip and consumer electronics.
