“I’m proud of our team’s decision four years ago to put our quantum systems online with the IBM Quantum Experience, aiming to accelerate innovation at a global scale by collaborating with now over 200,000 scientists, developers, and students around the world,” said Jay Gambetta, an IBM fellow and vice president of Quantum Computing at IBM, in a statement. “Hands-on training such as this coding challenge, hackathons, and our quantum internship program is the best way to encourage new diverse talent to prepare for quantum computing careers.”
As developers program quantum computers, what they are really doing is building and running quantum circuits, IBM said. To support learning about quantum circuits the company is suggesting that those interested:
· Read the Qiskit textbook chapter where IBM defines quantum circuits as we understand them today. Dive in to explore quantum computing principles and learn how to implement quantum algorithms on your own.
· Watch its newly launched live lectures called “Circuit Sessions,” or get started programming a quantum computer by watching “Coding with Qiskit.” Subscribe to the Qiskit YouTube channel to watch these two series and more.
