Introduction to Quantum Computing
We've all heard the phrase quantum computing in the media and online, but do we understand what it is and the impacts? This course will provide you with an introduction to the information needed to understand quantum computing. You will learn the differences between quantum and traditional computing. The concept of parallelism will be introduced along with algorithms that are specific to quantum computing that will lead to a comprehension of the concept of quantum annealing.

Leading Qubit Modalities
As you explore the world of quantum computing, it is important to understand the smaller components that lead to this concept. If you are familiar traditional computing, you likely have trained yourself to work in binary. A qubit is the binary equivalent in quantum computing and in this course, you will learn all about Qubit Modalities. In this course, you will explore how qubits are related to trapped ions which will lead to Qubit Superconducting.
