Introduction to Quantum Computing


The speaker will review of various quantum computing devices, how quantum properties make quantum computing possible and the kinds of problems that could have a quantum speedup in the future.

Quantum computing is the exploitation of physical properties of quantum states, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform computation. The devices that perform quantum computations are known as quantum computers. They are believed to be able to solve certain computational problems, such as integer factorization (used in cryptography), substantially faster than classical computers. Quantum Computing is expected to grow in the next few years as the field shifts toward real-world use in pharmaceutical, data security and many other applications.
