Prof Marcello Caleffi’s public lecture "2020: Toward Practical Quantum Computing"
Estonian IEEE branch invites you to participate an open lecture of Prof Marcello Caleffi (Italy) "2020: Toward Practical Quantum Computing" on Tuesday, November 27th 13.00-14.30 in room U04-103.
- What is quantum computing?
- What makes quantum computing different from classical computing?
- Why is so hard to design a quantum algorithm? Why so much excitement about this paradigm? What already accomplished? What next?
Participants of this talk can obtain a wide view about quantum computing, and they can acquire familiarity with the unfamiliar quantum-mechanics physical notation.
