Quantum Computers: From Hardware to Software - Euan Allen & Alex Moylett

Over the last few years, quantum computing has seen a surge in popularity. With both large companies and new start-ups around the globe working on developing these new and exciting machines, there has never been a better time to get involved.

But what exactly is a quantum computer, and how will it affect you? We are two researchers from the University of Bristol’s Quantum Engineering Technology Labs, where academics work on building quantum computers using integrated silicon photonics. In this talk, we shall cover the fundamentals of quantum computing, the hardware used to construct quantum processors, and what cool algorithms you can program for a quantum computer right now!
