- Matrix multiplication is preferred but will also be explained during lectures
Quantum computing is an innovative, transformative technology that has the possibility to revolutionize all fields including machine learning, drug development, finance, logistics, and more. Many companies and universities are devoting resources to the research and development of bigger and better quantum computers. This entry level course aims to ease learners into quantum computing, understanding the basics of how quantum computing works and how it can be applied. We will also cover topics like how quantum computing is different from classical computing, how quantum computers store information, and how quantum computers manipulate that information.
There are four learning objectives within the course which revolve around different aspects of quantum computing
Understand the differences between quantum computing and classical computing
Understand the three main phenomena of quantum mechanics used by quantum computing: interference, entanglement, and superposition
Understand the “quantum stack”
Understand some of the applications of quantum computing
There are ten lectures within this course which amount to around one and a half hours of content. These ten lectures in order are:
Lecture One: What is Quantum Computing?
Lecture Two: The Qubit
Lecture Three: Superposition
Lecture Four: Single Qubit Quantum Gates
Lecture Five: Entanglement
Lecture Six: Interference
Lecture Seven: Quantum Circuits
Lecture Eight: The Quantum Stack
Lecture Nine: Quantum Applications
Lecture Ten: The Future of Quantum Computing
Who this course is for:
- Anyone looking to learn about the basics of quantum computing
My name is Richard Wang and I am a high school senior interested in quantum computing's application in agriculture. Based on my research, I realized that a lot of farmers around the world do not have access to knowledge that will improve their farming techniques. They do not produce enough to support their communities. This was the inspiration for Quantum Mind, and we hope that by using the most innovative technologies like self learning, quantum computing, satellite, predictive modeling, and agricultural research, we can help these farmers quickly increase their crop yields in order to better feed the world. My experience in quantum computing includes completing the course "Introduction to Quantum Computing for High School Students 2020-2021" by QubitbyQubit and completing the IBM Qiskit Summer School for Quantum Machine Learning 2021.
