How do quantum computers work? What is a qubit? What on earth did Schrödinger do to his cats? This session unravels the mysteries of those “entangled” qubits. It goes into the basics of quantum computing with simple and fun experiments, visual demonstrations, and a skippyball (known as Mr. Qubit), and you’ll even see a working running quantum computer.... simulator, in Java, built from scratch. The presentation also covers how larger quantum algorithms work by explaining Shor’s prime factoring algorithm and Grover’s search algorithm, without too much math.
