This week’s SUMS talk is by undergrad Eric Huang. Abstract: Quantum mechanics has deep implications for computing. Exploiting quantum phenomena such as entanglement and superposition, quantum computers promise to solve some important problems far more efficiently than even the fastest supercomputers. The race is on to build a scalable quantum computer that will herald a revolution in technology and scientific progress. Join us for a gentle glimpse into this exciting field, starting from basics to understanding quantum algorithms and beyond.
