Speaker: Frank Leymann, University of Stuttgart

Quantum computing is perceived to have a deep impact on computing and society in general. In this talk, we present the underpinnings of quantum computing. The notion of quantum bits as well as phenomena like quantum parallelism and entanglement - which are considered to be the sources of the power of quantum computers - are explained. The way how quantum computers are programmed, which is very differently from programming classical computers, is introduced. The potentials of quantum computing are exemplified by sketching their use in machine learning. Finally, the limits of currently available quantum computers are discussed.
