QBronze85 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop | May 27-29 & June 3-5, 2022
We are happy to announce our QBronze workshop organized as a part of QIndia’s Summer of Kyu series and as part of the QSpring2022 project! Join us in the introductory workshop “Quantum Computing and Programming”. Learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs.
We are inviting everyone wishing to learn more about quantum computers. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze-Qiskit by QWorld. We will use the Discord to conduct the workshop and we will have daily Zoom meetings.
Participants are expected to follow the workshop materials, join the lectures and complete the material on their own. The workshop will be held during 6 days with approximately 18 hours of training.
We will share homework via QWorld Canvas (five homework, in total 100 pts). The participants who complete them all successfully (at least 50% from each) with at least 70 pts in total, will earn their diplomas!
The participants are expected to work individually at least 16 hours to complete the following sections of Bronze: basics of classical systems, basics of quantum systems, basic quantum operators, quantum correlation and quantum protocols, and quantum search algorithm.
The tutorial is a collection of Jupyter notebooks, and each notebook has a recorded lecture. We use python to solve the tasks and Qiskit library to code quantum programs. The participants should know at least one programming language, and they should make themselves familiar with Python before the workshop if they do not know Python. We will share the installation instructions and a few notebooks on basics of mathematics and participants should review them before the workshop starts.
Friday May 20th: 18:00 – 19:00 – Tech team will be available on discord to help with installation issues.
Friday May 27th: 18:00 – 19:00 – Welcome session (zoom link will be provided in #announcements channel of the discord server before the start of the session)
