In Detail

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

This course starts by introducing you to the basics of current classical computing technology that is based on bits/binary digits (0 and 1) and quantum computing (qubits), and how it is way much more advanced than earlier. Then you will install and get tested on working with the Jupyter notebook and IBM Qiskit in order to execute codes. Lastly, you will learn all the quantum computing concepts and their execution simultaneously in a much leaner, simpler, and more concise format.

By the end of this course, you will learn the basics of quantum computing through implementing it via IBM Qiskit, and you could be able to contribute yourself to the domain that is still in the development phase and be a part of great opportunities in the future for quantum computing professionals.

Who this book is for

The course is best suited for beginners who want to start with practical quantum computing concepts.

Basic computer knowledge and enthusiasm about quantum computing are the only prerequisites to excel and extract the most out of this course.
