Discover Quantum Computing with Qiskit

Eric Michiels


This lecture allows the students to start learning the Quantum Computing principles while using Qiskit. The students are guided with their installation of Qiskit and then create a series of Jupyter Notebooks that allow to actively learn step-by-step. What are Qubits? What is Superposition? What is Entanglement? What are Typical Quantum Gates? How to create my first Quantum Algorithm? All these questions will be resolved in a practical manner. The Qiskit Textbook is often referred to, but this lecture has a lower threshold and is a perfect introduction to understand more advanced topics.
