Quantum Computing: An Introduction


Quantum computing is an emerging field that uses the principle of quantum physics replacing classic computing which is based on electronics processing.

With the provision of AI driven applications, the classical concepts of computing as well as the underlying technology stacks are becoming more & more inadequate to address the speed and accuracy of processing required to address expert systems.

In this one-day course, we intend to introduce the audience to the concept of quantum computing vision projecting the future vision on how tomorrow’s applications might harness this fascinating technology.
