Intel posted a job you might be interested in


Parallel Processing Intern

San Francisco Bay Area, US - Computer Hardware, Computer Software, Semiconductors

Intel Labs is seeking a motivated graduate intern to join their team.

The goal of this internship is to compare performance of several quantum algorithms against best existing classical algorithms running on modern computer system. Quantum algorithm performance will be assessed using gate (and if time allows adiabatic) model of quantum computation. Quantum computer simulator (as well as D-Wave hardware, if time allows) will be used to assess quantum algorithm performance potential.

We will start with one of algorithms, such as graph coloring, or Weighted Max 2SET, for which quantum implementation is well-known and quantum-speedup has been studied using both models of quantum computation.

We will then move on other problems, such as nearest-neighbor search, deep learning, or VLSI placement and routing, for which quantum algorithms are less understood, and try to develop our own. Where possible, we will try to project quantum algorithm performance on future-generation quantum systems (with larger number of q-bits, reduced error rates, etc.)

We will also spend time on classical implementation of the chosen algorithms. We will use highly-optimized high performance implementation, taking advantage of modern architectural features (eg., SIMD, many-core, large caches) to assure fair comparison and quantify “true” quantum speedup. We will target internal and external publication of our findings by the end of the internship.


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Experience listed below would be obtained through relevant previous job and/or research experiences.

Minimum qualifications

- Must be part of a PhD program in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering or related technical discipline

Preferred qualifications

- Preference will be given to candidates with proven expertise and publications in one or more of these areas: modern architectural features, nearest-neighbor search, deep learning, VLSI placement and routing, Quantum algorithm/computer performance and similar.

10 great scenic drives around the world … that you’ve probably never heard of

A great driving route doesn’t always have to mean an epic road trip. Get behind the wheel for these journeys in the US, Spain, Switzerland, Japan and Norway and you’ll still enjoy the experience of stunning views and winding roads

The twisting Sa Calobra highway in Mallorca sneaks through impossibly narrow gorges, as well as featuring an epic 360-degree curve, the Nus de Sa Calobra. Snaking through the rocky landscape of the island, the eight-mile stretch of tarmac is also steep. Built in such a way as to avoid using tunnels, a fair proportion of the road has a gradient of more than 7%. If you really want a challenge, try tackling it by bike.
