Open Source Quantum Computing 101
"We are at the beginning of the era of Quantum computers. No longer are they are thing of theory and imagination, but they exist, and you can even access them today over the cloud.
Join us on a journey of discovery that’s the basics of Quantum information theory, what a Quantum computer actually does and looks like, and how you can start playing with quantum systems in Jupyter notebooks and python. We’ll look at the Qiskit open source project, which provides a programming model, an open source quantum simulator, and a way to run jobs on a real quantum system.
And we’ll break down the myths of Quantum computers, and hopefully give you a feel for where we are in this long journey towards quantum systems." This is designed as an intro to the area, and giving people a chance to play with real quantum systems.
