Quantum computing has recently emerged as a potential tool for large-scale scientific computing. In sharp contrast to their classical counterparts, quantum computers use qubits that can exist in superposition, potentially offering exponential speedup for many computational problems. Current quantum devices are noisy and error-prone, and in near term, a hybrid approach is more appropriate. I will discuss this hybrid framework using three examples: quantum machine learning, quantum algorithms for density-functional theory and quantum optimal control. In particular, this talk will outline how quantum algorithms can be interfaced with a classical method, the convergence properties and the overall complexity.
