Fengqi You featured in ORNL blog on quantum computing
Fengqi You, the Roxanne E. and Michael J. Zak Professor in Energy Systems Engineering in Cornell University’s College of Engineering, is mentioned in ORNL’s Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility blog on quantum computing titled "Serving up bleeding-edge compute power and expertise to the world’s scientists."
Fengqi You, the Roxanne E. and Michael J. Zak Professor in Energy Systems Engineering in Cornell University’s College of Engineering, used the program to successfully test a proposed quantum computer-based artificial intelligence system for identifying and diagnosing faults in electrical power grids. Being able to access an actual quantum computer from D-Wave Systems through QCUP has been a big boost to designing his new detection system.
“Quantum computers can help improve certain aspects of the training methodology by providing better gradient estimates compared to their classical counterparts, thus improving convergence and resulting in better generalization,” You said. “Apart from the improvement in training techniques, the proposed fault diagnosis framework also demonstrates faster response times than popular fault detection methods.”
