MIT xPRO course: "Requirements for Large-Scale Universal Quantum Computation," begins Sept. 10, 2018


MIT xPRO course |  Online  

Course description

Understand the requirements necessary for reliable quantum computation and get hands-on experience on potential applications using the IBM Q Experience. This course explores the concepts of quantum error correction, the threshold for practical, fault-tolerant quantum computation, and models of quantum computation beyond quantum circuits. Learners will also work on mitigating errors in a superconducting qubit system with composite pulses using the IBM Q Experience in an assessment exercise.

This is course 4 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

  • Describe the conceptual role of fault-tolerance in realizing large-scale quantum and classical computation.
  • Gain knowledge of one quantum error correction code, and its code parameters.
  • Familiarize yourself with the scientific basis for families of quantum error correction codes.
  • Understand the different strategies for counteracting systematic versus random error in quantum computation.
