Talk: Quantum Computing Concepts

Quantum Computing exploits quantum phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to realize a form of parallelism that is not available to traditional computing. It offers the potential of significant computational speed-ups in quantum chemistry, materials science, cryptography, and machine learning.

-With no prior knowledge of condensed matter physics or advanced mathematics, it's hard to separate hype from reality.

Come learn the fundamentals of Quantum Computing, get a sense of where it applies and what it can do, and the challenges being faced to make it a reality. Oh, and we'll write a little quantum computing code too!
