General information

Compared to ordinary computers, quantum computers behave very differently. Instead of bits, the basic units of quantum computers are quantum bits, qubits. By exploiting quantum superposition and entanglement of the qubits, quantum computers have the potential to revolutionize high-performance computing. Quantum computers differ from their classical counterparts also when it comes to basic computational operators. Before they can be utilized, quantum computers require tailor-made programs and algorithms. In this course, we will go through the basic operating principles of quantum computers and put the theory into immediate hands-on practice. We will get acquainted with quantum algorithm programming by using Kvasi, the Atos Quantum Learning Machine, capable of emulating a 30+ qubit quantum computer.

Prerequisites

No previous experience with quantum computers is expected. Basic programming skills and familiarity with the Jupyter Notebook environment is an asset, however; a quick overview of Jupyter usage.
