Master Quantum Computing, Quantum Cryptography, and Quantum Physics with Microsoft Q# (Q Sharp) & IBM Quantum Experience

What you'll learn:
  • Use quantum cryptography to communicate securely
  • Develop, simulate, and debug quantum programs on Microsoft Q#
  • Run quantum programs on a real quantum computer through IBM Quantum Experience
  • Use Dirac's notation and quantum physics models to analyze quantum circuits

Quantum Computing is the next wave of the software industry. Quantum computers are exponentially faster than classical computers of today. Problems that were considered too difficult for computers to solve, such as simulation of protein folding in biological systems, and cracking RSA encryption, are now possible through quantum computers.

How fast are Quantum Computers? A 64-bit quantum computer can process 36 billion billion bytes of information in each step of computation. Compare that to the 8 bytes that your home computer can process in each step of computation!

Companies like Google, Intel, IBM, and Microsoft are investing billions in their quest to build quantum computers. If you master quantum computing now, you will be ready to profit from this technology revolution.

This course teaches quantum computing from the ground up. The only background you need is 12th grade level high-school Math and Physics.

If it has been a while since you completed your high-school Math courses, and if you want a quick review, take a look at the prerequisites course: QC051: Math Foundation for Quantum Computing.

IMPORTANT: You must enjoy Physics and Math to get the most out of this course. This course is primarily about analyzing the behavior of quantum circuits using Math and Quantum Physics. While everything you need to know beyond 12th grade high school science is explained here, you must be aware that Quantum Physics is an extremely difficult subject. You might frequently need to stop the video and replay the lesson to understand it. How will you know if this course is right for you? The first 13 lessons in the course can be previewed for free. Watch the free previews before purchasing the course. If you enjoy the first 13 lessons, you will probably enjoy the rest of the course.

In the first part of this course you will learn to communicate securely using quantum cryptography.

Next, you will learn basic quantum physics along with the mathematical tools you need for analyzing quantum systems.

Finally, you will use industry tools to develop quantum software: Microsoft Q# on Visual Studio and IBM Quantum Experience.

Additionally, the course materials include a downloadable Q# framework that you can use to experiment with quantum algorithms, entanglement, and superposition.
