Quantum Computing @ Grace Hopper Conference 2019 GHC19
I had recently attended the Grace Hopper 2019 conference in Orlando, and had the opportunity to speak with researchers from IBMQ and Qiskit about the current state of quantum computing. Although, I did not get a chance to obtain a ticket to IBMQ's Universal Studios event at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (the line was extremely long!), I still wanted to share some of the topics surrounding the emerging tech of quantum computing.
I spoke with Cihan Kurter, Research Scientist at IBM Watson, after her presentation titled, "Near-Term Applications of Quantum Computers", and asked, how exactly does the mysterious IBMQ qubit work?
