Quantum Computing Workshops
Employing quantum phenomena, quantum computers have the potential to solve the most complex computational challenges of humanity. Those are the problems that require calculating many possible combinations. Multiple industries and areas of our society are based on solving such problems – chemistry, material science, biology, climate, aerospace, financial sector, energy sector, cryptography, logistics and so on.
With the recent breakthroughs in physics and computer science, we are already able to experiment in hardware on quantum scale and build standardized and open-source quantum software stacks. While preparing for the availability of practical quantum computing at scale, already today companies from the mentioned above industries can build quantum algorithms and deploy them to the variety of quantum hardware available through public cloud providers.
Join one of our workshops and learn more about what you will be able to do in the nearest future and what you can do already today with quantum computing.
Target audience: business and technical decision makers.
Language of the workshops: English.
Presenter: Michael Samarin, VP, Head of Cloud and Architecture, Futurice.
There are two options to participate:
May 30th, 10:00 – 13:30, physical workshop in the classroom.
Lunch, coffee, and snacks will be served during the workshop. Please, specify your dietary choice during the registration. There will be no remote participation option for this workshop.
Location: Innovation Home Kamppi, Dustin Event Arena, Kansakoulukatu 3, 00100 Helsinki
June 13th, 10:00-13:00, virtual workshop over Microsoft Teams
Please note, the duration of the physical workshop is 30 min longer due to the lunch, otherwise content is identical.
Agenda for the workshops
Part I: Quantum computing – paradigm shift
We will talk about what makes quantum computing so attractive for the specific class of problems. Where we are today on the road to a practical and scalable quantum computer. Which businesses in Finland should already today start exploring and experimenting with available quantum software and hardware stacks.
Part II: Quantum computing today through a public cloud
Overview of quantum hardware and software stacks available today from Microsoft, AWS, Google, IBM and Xanadu with live demos.
Part III: Hands-on experiments with Azure Quantum for all participants
Thanks to Microsoft Quantum team in Redmond, we have opportunity to provide access to Azure Quantum workspace during the workshop to all participants. Please, bring your own laptop, no special requirements, only web browser is needed. All participants will be able to create a real quantum program and deploy it to a real quantum hardware. Quantum hardware selection is a subject of the availability during the time of the workshop.
