Description

Who this course is for:

  • Beginners who want to start with Practical Quantum Computing Concepts

What you'll learn:

  • Learn and understand about General Quantum Computing based on IBM Qiskit Documentation

Hello and welcome to my new course The Dummies guide to Practical Quantum Computing with IBM Qiskit. Our current classical computing technology is based on bits or binary digits 1 and 0 . 1 for ON and 0 OFF. Even though it has two states, a bit can exist in only one state at a time. Just like a coin having two faces head and tail.

NOTE: In classical computers a programmer can simply WRITE HIGH LEVEL CODE AND RUN it. But for Quantum Computers we have to DESIGN CIRCUITS for performing specific tasks.

Quantum computing concept is entirely different from classical one. It uses the quantum mechanical property of tiny sub-atomic particles like electrons to perform computation. Instead of 1 and 0, a qubit or quantum bit uses the spin position 'up' and 'down' of electrons.

But unlike bits, qubits can exist in both states simultaneously. Like a coin keeps on spinning, we could say it is having equal probability for both head and tail. Or it is both head and tail at the same time.

As the number of qubits increases, this speed increases exponentially compared to classical computers. Computations like data analytics, artificial intelligence which require large parallel processing ability, can be calculated in a matter of milli-seconds, where currently, it takes ages to complete.

Even though it's not going to replace our laptops or mobile phones, Quantum computers will be able to solve these roadblocks of traditional computers in data processing.

Overall, this will be a nice course for beginners who are fascinated about quantum computing and want to learn more about quantum computing. Actual quantum computing is all about complex boring mathematics and formulas which I have tried my maximum to avoid, I converted it in a very simple way to make it understandable to a beginner.

In this course we are strictly following the IBM Qiskit documentation and text book. Almost all of the illustrations and examples used in this course are from the IBM Qiskit Documentation website which you may refer for further learning from this point.

Quantum computers could help the development of new breakthroughs in science, medications, machine learning, material science, finance - which helps mankind to become the best civilization in the whole universe. In fact, quantum computers are so powerful that no one knows how to use their true potential and till now no quantum algorithm is perfect. The hardware and code are still in its development stage providing great opportunities in future for quantum computing professionals.

So that's all for now, see you soon inside the course. Happy learning and have a great time.

FAQs

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
