We are witnessing the birth of the quantum computing era. Quantum computers are no longer a theoretical object, they do exist. And even though their computational power is not yet at the level of rivaling classical computers in relevant problems, it is at the point where scientists may begin to uncover its true potential. Therefore, now is the most suitable time to begin putting the focus on the next generation of quantum scientists by providing them with an overview of current quantum computing technology, both at the software and hardware levels.
This summer school particularly aims at granting access to attendees to all available quantum computers, combined with introductory lectures by some of the top-world experts on each particular technology. Some of the most commonly implemented classical and quantum software protocols will be introduced, followed by interactive and hands-on activities with which to experience the power of this disruptive quantum technology.
