Quantum Computing is all over the news these days. Lots of mysterious words like `superposition` and `entanglement`, and unfamiliar physical phenomena. How do you tell fact from fiction in the news? What do these things really mean? How does quantum computing work? Why do you care? Where will it make a difference? Using many pictures, a tiny bit of physics, and a little bit of mathematics, John will walk you through what the main concepts of quantum computing are, and how to get some intuition for how it works. You'll honestly learn about what Quantum Computing is great at, and where it's not. John will also share with you what Quantum Computing code looks like, and he'll dissect a Quantum Algorithm to see how it works. When you leave this talk you should have a few concepts clear, and some tools to get started with exploring Quantum Computing further.
