Quantum computing is the processing of information that’s represented by special quantum states. By tapping into quantum phenomena like “superposition” and “entanglement,” these machines handle information in a fundamentally different way to “classical” computers like smartphones, laptops, or even today’s most powerful supercomputers. Researchers have long predicted that quantum computers could tackle certain types of problems — especially those involving a daunting number of variables and potential outcomes, like simulations or optimization questions — much faster than any classical computer. Quantum computing is a revolutionary new way to build computers that take advantage of Quantum circuits and promise to outperform classical supercomputers in several problem domains. David Bader will present an overview of Quantum Computing and discuss how it works, machine designs, the leading Quantum computers, and quantum applications.
