MIT xPRO course |  Online  

Course description

Understand the possibilities and advantages of Quantum Computing and get hands-on experience on potential applications using the IBM Q Experience. This course explores practical realities of quantum computing including its ability to help accelerate classical computers. Learners will take a deep dive into quantum noise both characterizing and benchmarking using the IBM Q Experience.

This is course 3 of 4 that comprises the Applications of Quantum Computing Professional Certificate Program. Learners may enroll in each of the four courses independently and receive a certificate of completion and CEUs. However, all 4 courses are required in order to get the Professional Certificate in Quantum Computing and purchasing the program saves over 40% off the cost of the four courses individually.

If you were unable to attend the Applications of Quantum Computing program's webinar on March 28, 2018, follow the link to watch the full webinar.

What You'll Learn

  • Familiarize with the practical tradeoffs between trapped ion and superconducting qubit implementations of quantum computers.
  • Gain proficiency with the typical coherence times and quantum gate counts achievable with leading quantum computer implementations
  • Summarize the physical limits for quantum coherence times and quantum communication limits over optical fibers.
  • Evaluate technology options for realizing quantum computers and quantum communication systems using atoms, photons, and superconductors.
