Lunch and Learn: Quantum 101 with IBM
Quantum computing draws on the fundamental laws of nature to carry out calculations using quantum bits, qubits. Unlike a classical bit, which can only be one of two states, 0 or 1, qubits can be a mix of 0 and 1 simultaneously. This enables exponentially larger calculations, giving quantum computers the potential to solve extremely complex problems that are too difficult for even the most powerful classical supercomputers. IBM has a long history of advancing the reality of quantum computing technology and brings decades of research - from theory to the entire technology stack - to the quantum computing industry. Its teams have built on this strong foundation of expertise to lead significant breakthroughs and milestones across quantum hardware and software, such as the first quantum computer available on the cloud in 2016, as well as the creation of a global quantum ecosystem. This talk will cover the foundations of quantum computing, how IBM is bringing this technology to the world, and what problems are already being addressed by quantum computing.
