Experimental progress toward a general-purpose Quantum Internet is advancing rapidly, but the challenges in building a Quantum Internet extend far beyond having a physical layer that can create entanglement across a distance. Quantum Internet nodes must share management of distributed tomography, errors, entanglement swapping, multiplexing of resources, selection of routes, and more to support application-requested actions for distributed cryptographic functions, quantum sensor networks, and distributed quantum computation. I will introduce our RuleSet-based Quantum Internet architecture and the simulation tools that are enabling us to develop working protocols, and discuss the need for multi-disciplinary organizations to address the broad range of problems.
Rodney Van Meter received a B.S. in engineering and applied science from the California Institute of Technology in 1986, an M.S. in computer engineering from the University of Southern California in 1991, and a Ph.D. in computer science from Keio University in 2006. His current research centers on quantum computer architecture and quantum networking. Other research interests include storage systems, networking, and post-Moore's Law computer architecture. He is now a Professor of Environment and Information Studies at Keio University's Shonan Fujisawa Campus. He is the Vice Center Chair of Keio's Quantum Computing Center. Dr. Van Meter is a member of AAAS, ACM APS, and IEEE.
