Descripción de la actividad

This summer school is a five-day introduction to practical quantum computing with devices that are already, or will be soon, commercialized. Speakers will introduce the foundations of quantum computing, as well as its application in chemistry, physics, optimization and finance. The school will cover topics such as quantum programming (QISKIT), variational quantum computation and quantum machine learning.

Students will be offered a selection of practical problems that can be addressed with quantum computers. They will work in teams to develop a piece of quantum software to solve the proposed tasks. The summer school has two practical 2-hour sessions, during which the school organizers will supervise the work by the students. Finally, each student team will present their work at the end of the school.

In addition to practical aspects, speakers will also provide a vision of the future of quantum computing in terms of hardware development and applications.

This online summer school is ideally suited for final year students, PhD students in this ore related research fields, or professionals interested in learning quantum computing. Even though this is a short course, it will provide students with the necessary resources and orientation to start working and getting prepared for quantum computing.

The summer school requires some background in quantum physics, as well as some basic knowledge of python. The required background is well within the level of a Physics last year student. Students with a different scientific degree, e.g. in Chemistry, Mathematics or Engineering, may also apply, however they are encouraged to at least carry out some previous study or review of basic principles and ideas in quantum mechanics.
