You've heard that quantum computing is going to change the world. Now you can check it out for yourself. Learn how quantum computing works, and write programs that run on the IBM Q quantum computer, one of the world's first functioning quantum computers. Learn a simple way to app...ly quantum mechanics to computer programming. Create algorithms to solve intractable problems for classical computers, and discover how to explore the entire problem space at once to determine the optimal solution. Get your hands on the future of computing today. Quantum computing overhauls computer science. Problems such as designing life-saving drugs and super-large logistics problems that have been difficult or impossible for classical computers to handle can now be solved in moments. Quantum computing makes it possible to explore all possible solutions simultaneously and determine those that work, instead of iterating through each possibility sequentially. Work with quantum computers directly, instead of talking about them theoretically. Work with qubits, the fundamental elements of quantum computing. Discover what makes them different from classical bits. Model complex problems with logic gates specific to quantum computing. Learn how quantum mechanics offers ways to write programs that explore all solutions simultaneously. Create quantum circuits to solve problems that classical computers struggle with. Dive into quantum optimization and cryptography. Use the IBM Q quantum computer to both simulate quantum effects, and actually run your programs on a real quantum machine. Get a head start on the technology that will drive computer science into the future. What You Need: Access to the IBM quantum computer, via any internet connection
