Title: A Basic Introduction to Quantum Computing: hardware, software, and applications.

Abstract: The surprising and unique properties of quantum systems at
atomic scales can be to used to create novel computers that may be much faster than conventional computers. Quantum computers, such as those now being built by IBM, Microsoft, Google, Intel, D-Wave, Regetti, Ion-Q, Quantum Circuits and other companies, use very different hardware and software than conventional computers. This talk with provide a (hopefully understandable) introduction to quantum hardware qubits, the mathematics of 1 and 2 qubit gates, and quantum algorithms and their applications.
