SUMS: Huang -- Demystifying Quantum Computing

This week’s SUMS talk is by undergrad Eric Huang. 


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.
