>>Hello. My name is Mariia. Today, I will tell you about some really great tools that we created to help people learn quantum computing. So earlier today, you heard a lot about quantum computing, and you have to admit that it’s a very exciting topic. There is also this idea of being able to solve

A quantum computer is a device, a technological device that in principle would harness the full capacity of quantum mechanics to undertake calculations that a standard computer would be absolutely unable to achieve. One way of thinking about it is this. There’s an approach to quantum mechanics where one imagines that there are many in

The contents of this metal cylinder could either revolutionize technology or be completely useless— it all depends on whether we can harness the strange physics of matter at very, very small scales. To have even a chance of doing so, we have to control the environment precisely: the thick tabletop and legs guard against vibrations

[MUSIC] With classical computing, you reach some limitations, and you run up against physical barriers. And one of those is just related to the ever decreasing size of the things that are actually bits, or doing the computation. At these small length scales, you start to affect atoms, individual atoms. And you need to worry

Moore’s Law is already showing signs of exhaustion for some time. The silicon, the main component used in the construction of the processors we use daily, is already reaching the physical limits inherent in the structure of that material, with the miniaturization of elements within the chip, begins to lose its electrical conductivity characteristics so

If we had a large quantum computer, what would we do with it? In principle, a universal quantum computer can perform any logic operation but the real advantage of using quantum computers comes only if we can find an algorithm that uses the exponentially large amount of information that can be stored in the quantum

How might quantum computers destroy computer security? By utilizing Shor’s algorithm. [MUSIC PLAYING] Last week, we made a ton of progress toward our goal of hacking into an encrypted message. Remember, popular forms of cryptography work by multiplying together two large prime numbers and using those primes as keys to recover the message. So to

Hello, I am Sadik. Zurich Instruments entered the quantum computing market five years ago. We were the first to integrate a lock-in amplifier with an arbitrary waveform generator, which is a self-contained solution for single-qubit characterization, control and readout. And man has the world changed since then. The interest for quantum computing has gone through
