This talk discards handwavy popscience metaphors and answers a simple question: from a computer science perspective, how can a quantum computer outperform a classical computer? Attendees will learn the following:
Representing computation with basic linear algebra (matrices and vectors) The computational workings of qbits, superposition, and quantum logic gates Solving the Deutsch oracle problem: the simplest problem where a quantum computer outperforms classical methods Bonus topics: quantum entanglement and teleportation
The talk concludes with a live demonstration of quantum entanglement on a realworld quantum computer, and a demo of the Deutsch oracle problem implemented in Q# with the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit. This talk assumes no prerequisite knowledge, although comfort with basic linear algebra (matrices, vectors, matrix multiplication) will ease understanding.
