Collab: Quantum Computing

Fall 2020

Taught By: Sven Travis and Lin Zhou

Section: A

CRN: 9319

Credits: 3

Although computing power has risen drastically, we are now witness to the rise of an entirely new type of computation - quantum. The quantum computer can quickly complete calculations that take supercomputers much longer. IBM, Google, Alibaba, Microsoft etc. have debuted major quantum computing programs. IBM-Q (IBM’s project) is now accessible to the general public. The design industry will soon follow suit. Quantum skills are in demand, and this need is expected to accelerate. As artificial intelligence represented next generation skills 10 years ago and is one of the highest-paid careers today, quantum computing represents the future generation of hi-tech skill. The “Practical Quantum Computing” course will introduce quantum computing to students who want to experiment and strengthen their skills. No previous tech skills are required. The course will cover the fundamentals of quantum physics and quantum computing, including superposition, entanglement, interference, qubits, unitary operators, measurement and quantum circuit model. The students will create quantum circuits using Open Quantum Assembly Language (OpenQASM), execute the circuits using real IBM-Q quantum computers, and interpret the results. Students will learn to develop and program quantum computer software using an open-source framework- Qiskit. The course will investigate the application of quantum computing to art, design, education and business. Students will work individually and in groups on class projects. IBM will provide access to its quantum computer via the cloud. The class will visit the IBM quantum computer laboratories to gain first-hand information about the quantum computer. Again, no previous tech skills are required.
