Introduction to Quantum Computing


We will provide an introduction and overview of quantum computing and IBM Quantum. This will include a discussion on the motivation for quantum computing and how quantum computers work. Next, we will examine the types of problems to which quantum computing might be applied. The development roadmap will be presented. The IBM Quantum platform, which provides the tooling and interfaces for programming IBM quantum computers, will be introduced. Finally, we will highlight the IBM Quantum ecosystem which includes the IBM Quantum Network and the Qiskit community. After this session you should be empowered with the knowledge and resources you need to begin your quantum computing journey.

Note that this is part 1 of a 2-session series on Quantum Computing on Oct 12/13 and Nov 02/03. The sessions are not prerequisites for each other, and are not recorded. We will provide reference links and do quick recaps of previous content as required, so if you miss an earlier session, you can still get value from subsequent sessions.
