Why Quantum Computing?

Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionise the way we think about computing and information processing. The first batch of quantum algorithms have shown that quantum computers can outperform classical computers in certain specialised tasks. New applications are being proposed in a variety of fields. This course will introduce you to the basics of quantum computing through a practical approach. Participants will learn about qubits and gating operations, construct quantum circuits and learn about quantum algorithms. Participants will also learn how to use Qiskit to construct and run quantum circuits on simulators and actual quantum hardware using Python.
