Look inside

Get tangled up in quantum computing! Action at a Distance Corporation, a consortium of venture capitalists, believes the time to invest in quantum computing startups is now. As the consortium’s resident researcher, your task is to understand the power of quantum computing.

You’ll learn to recognize normalized quantum states of two qubits, a key skill in implementing quantum algorithms. You’ll get familiar with the Controlled Not (CNOT) gate, vital to the construction of important, entangled states, and you’ll observe what Einstein called “spooky action at a distance” as you program the (famous!) entangled Bell states. Using the IBM Quantum Composer, you’ll visualize and animate quantum circuits, gaining insight into handling gates and their outcomes.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

This liveProject is for anyone with basic algebra and geometry skills, basic complex number skills, basic Python programming skills, and a strong interest in learning about the physical principles and techniques of quantum computer programming using IBM Qiskit. To begin these liveProjects you’ll need to be familiar with the following:

TOOLS- Python programming basics
- Basic algebra (equations and surds)
- Basic linear algebra (vectors and matrices)
- Basic geometry (diagrams and angles)
- Basic complex numbers (format and simple manipulation)
- Basic probability (using fractions and normalization)
- Basic classical computing
- Basics of quantum computing and Qiskit

- Use the command line in a terminal
- Create a virtual environment in Python using Conda or otherwise
- Install packages into a Python virtual environment, using pip
- Code and run Python programs using Jupyter Notebook

In this liveProject, you’ll learn core quantum computing skills including creating, visualizing, and animating quantum circuits, and you’ll understand the role of quantum computing in the industrial world.

- Construct and program two-qubit quantum states the CNOT quantum gate using IBM Qiskit
- Quantum entanglement (a fundamental quantum concept that Einstein famously referred to as "spooky action at a distance")
- IBM Quantum Computer
- Investigate and report on important quantum vocabulary

- Self-paced
- You choose the schedule and decide how much time to invest as you build your project.
- Project roadmap
- Each project is divided into several achievable steps.
- Get Help
- While within the liveProject platform, get help from other participants and our expert mentors.
- Compare with others
- For each step, compare your deliverable to the solutions by the author and other participants.
- book resources
- Get full access to select books for 90 days. Permanent access to excerpts from Manning products are also included, as well as references to other resources.
