Individually trapped neutral atoms offer a promising platform for the controlled, bottom-up engineering of quantum many-body systems. These atoms can be manipulated readily in large numbers and interact strongly when excited to Rydberg states. In this talk I will discuss a novel approach to use this platform for quantum computation. Our model does not require any local addressing or dynamical rearrangement. Instead the quantum algorithm is completely specified by the static atomic positions and executed by driving the array with a global, resonant laser field in a Rydberg blockade regime.
