Series to which this belongs

34° ciclo

Description

This school is aimed at giving the students an as thorough as possible view of the state-of-the-art research on Quantum Programming Languages at the different levels of programming: from assembly languages to higher level and universal languages that can run on all quantum devices. Both theoretical and implementation aspects will be addressed; in particular, we will offer laboratory sessions in which the students will be able to experience quantum programming and implement quantum algorithms using Qiskit library (https://qiskit.org).

Title
Quantum computers: a breakthrough in information processing and in machine programming at IBM
Summary
The age of quantum computing is just around the corner. After years of study and development in the laboratories of universities and research centers, the first prototypes of quantum processors are now publicly available to anyone who wants to start experimenting with their potential. They implement a new computing paradigm that, based on the quantum properties of matter, allows in principle to exceed the capabilities of classical processors in solving complex problems and of enormous scientific and industrial interest.,
In this talk we’ll describe the basics of the technology from industrial point of view, applications and algorithms for quantum computing, showing where we are in the timeline toward reaching quantum advantage - the point where quantum computing shows demonstrable and significant advantage over classical computers
