This session will be a practical, demo-lead introduction to quantum computation with Microsoft’s Q# platform (which now supports Mac and Linux).We will begin with a crash course in quantum computing and Q#, covering topics such as bits vs. qubits, superposition and entanglement, and gates and circuits, as well as some Q# basics. We will then move on to explore the unique phenomenon of quantum teleportation – first from a theoretical and then an applied perspective as we use Q# to bring the theory to life. The session will be presented by Anita Ramanan and Frances Tibble, both software engineers at Microsoft.
