Topic repeated at 2 different times, please join the session that is best suited for your time zone. We will provide an introduction and overview of quantum computing and IBM Quantum. This will include a discussion on the motivation for quantum computing and how quantum computers work.
Next, we will examine the types of problems to which quantum computing might be applied. The development roadmap will be presented. The IBM Quantum platform, which provides the tooling and interfaces for programming IBM quantum computers, will be introduced.
Finally, we will highlight the IBM Quantum ecosystem which includes the IBM Quantum Network and the Qiskit community. After this session you should be empowered with the knowledge and resources you need to begin your quantum computing journey.
Note that this is part 1 of an 8-session series on Quantum Computing on Mar 22/23, Apr 5/6, Apr 19/20, May 3/4, May 17/18, May 31/Jun 1, Jun 14/15, Jul 5/6. The sessions are not prerequisites for each other, and are not recorded. We will provide reference links and do quick recaps of previous content as required, so if you miss an earlier session, you can still get value from subsequent sessions.
Presenter: Sean Wagner
Sean Wagner is a Research Scientist and a Quantum Technical Ambassador at IBM. When he's not programming and experimenting with Qiskit, Sean spends his time working with researchers at academic institutions and industry partners in Canada on projects involving high-performance computing, hardware acceleration, quantum computing, and data science and AI.
Dr. Wagner holds a B.A.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, and M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Toronto.

This is an IBM sponsored Meetup group geared towards developers, data scientists, data engineers, and ALL Big Data, Cloud and AI enthusiasts. Our meetups provide an opportunity to work hands on with the solutions and tools in our Big Data portfolio and to interact and share knowledge with experts at IBM and in our extended community.
Our Meetups typically include a 45-60 min (max) presentation that serves as an introduction and overview for a specific Big Data technology. It is followed by ~3 hours to collaborate with fellow developers and apply your Big Data skills. Depending upon the location, we may provide a cloud environment that you can run through the browser of your laptop at NO cost to you. Our meetups are FREE.
Meetup topics include: - Hadoop-based analytics - Stream Computing - Text Analytics - Visualization and Discovery tools for Big Data - Big Data App Development - Deep dives into the technologies that makes big data processing possible - Anything and everything about Big Data
Join us today for a hands on software development experience.
