We describe the recent advances involving programmable, coherent manipulation of quantum many-body systems using atom arrays excited into Rydberg states.  Within this system we performed quantum simulations of 1D spin models, created large-scale entangled states and   realized high-fidelity, parallel multi-qubit logic operations. We will also describe our recent technical upgrades that now allow the control over 200 atoms in two-dimensional arrays.   Ongoing efforts  to study exotic many-body phenomena and to realize and test quantum optimization algorithms within such systems will be discussed.
